Collection: Humble Hilo

Just like one ordinary strand of thread can make an extraordinary product; we believe ordinary people can do extraordinary things-you are living proof. Founders Lauren and Erica are a passionate pair that mix fashion with philanthropy. With more than 7 years spent in Guatemala working with non-profit organizations, we want to do more than just sell products; we want to create a change. We have traveled back to bring fashion-forward items to market. These unique items mix ancient techniques with modern style that will set you apart from the rest. More importantly, we want you to take part in our philanthropic mission by selecting from one of our three amazing projects: Infant and Child Nutrition, Education, and Microfinance for Women. A portion of your purchase will go to support one of these projects and will not only change you, but change the future of someone in need.
Being women and mothers helps fuel our passion for not only the cause, but also helps us truly understand our customers and create products that resonate. We are constantly inspired by our customers and feed off of their excitement from our products and projects; it helps keep us motivated to continue to do what we do.

Humble Hilo not only brings beautiful handmade and unique Guatemalan textiles to you, but we are also creating opportunities and changing lives. By buying our products, you are not only supporting families in need of employment, but a portion of EVERY item you buy will go back to directly benefit those in great need by supporting projects. YOU get to choose to support projects in child nutrition, education and literacy for women, and microfinance loans for women to start their own small business to help break the cycle of poverty and help create opportunities for themselves, their families, and their communities. The effects of what you are helping us do through your support are endless…

We are confident that change is possible, and we hope that through your support and awareness, you can be a part of helping to change the lives of Guatemalan people in great need. We are excited to share this journey that is Humble Hilo, with you. We look forward to your comments, feedback and suggestions and creating a common thread with you. Mil Gracias.
