DESIGN COLLABORATIONS

Through our retail partnerships, we are bridging the gap between large brands and artisan cooperatives, with the goal to create a more conscious and compassionate fashion industry.

MARA HOFFMAN

We are thrilled to have collaborated with Mara Hoffman, a pioneer in sustainable fashion and 2022 Mercado Global Fashion Forward Gala Honoree. This timeless tote was consciously crafted from deadstock fabrics and honors the resilience of our partner artisans and their communities.

Zero + Maria cornejo

Zero + Maria Cornejo partnered with our design team to create an exclusive, hand-dyed collaboration that celebrates responsible design. Released on International Women's Day in 2023, this collection is exclusively available to purchase via the Zero + Maria Cornejo website and empowers our partner artisans while promoting sustainable practices. Each piece is timeless, crafted with meticulous attention to detail resulting in exquisite works of art.

LiveRpool

We are so proud to have partnered with Liverpool, a brand that values self-expression, confidence and a possibility of a better world above all else. This exclusive collection was released in celebration of International Women’s Day, and honors our partner artisans who lovingly handmade each piece.

Levi Strauss & Co

Levi Strauss & Co. has partnered with Mercado Global for over 15 years. Over $1 million in grants have been gifted to support our nonprofit programming and in more recent years, we have worked together to create one-of-a-kind pieces from upcycled denim, merging the world of handcraft with high-fashion denim.

free people

One of our long-term supporters and stockists, members of Free People’s leadership team visited us in Guatemala as part of the development of our exclusive collection of handbags, wearables, and woven accessories for the brand. This thoughtful and immersive experience exemplified their commitment to curating timeless pieces that capture the essence of our shared vision.

We connect Indigenous women in Latin America to the international fashion industry, helping them to send their children to school and create better futures for their families. Together, we are empowering the women who weave our collections, and inspiring the women who wear them. 

REFORMATION

Our exclusive collection of brocade and embroidered handbags created for Reformation showcased our commitment to sustainability. In a conscious effort to minimize waste and repurpose valuable resources, these exquisite handbags were meticulously crafted from deadstock fabrics.

PAmela LOVE

The incredible Pamela Love visited us in Guatemala to develop a unique collection of rope dye jewelry cases with vegetable tan leather detailing. The collection was featured in Vogue and carried at key retailers across the country.
