KK Happenings: MARIYA Collaboration Launch Party

This Thursday, you’re invited to celebrate the launch of our collaboration with MARIYA—a collection of Fair Trade handbags and accessories, handmade by the indigenous Wayuu women of La Guajira, Colombia.

Using traditional weaving methods and celebrating the history and technique of the Wayuu women, a portion of profits from each bag are donated to Aguayuda, a charity that provides water sanitation and access to communities located in the region.

We are so excited to debut an exclusive Katie Kime x MARIYA handbag collaboration, and this Thursday, July 14 from 6-8 will be celebrating the official kickoff at our downtown Austin store. We’ll be toasting the launch with champagne—and in-store guests will receive a little surprise giveaway from MARIYA. See you there!
