FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. Why are the color of my shoes or clothes slightly different than the shoes pictured online?
Each screen has a slight variation in color display and each customer’s screen settings may also vary. With our photo edits, we try to match the true color the best we can.
2. Why can’t I find the same textile design in a different size, and will you have the same textile in the future?
The textiles found in our Heritage Collection are handcrafted woven art that was created for someone special years ago and has now been recycled with love to be shared with the world. Each textile has a story and each played a unique role in the traditional attire of the wearer. Because the textiles found in our collection are one of a kind, we can only create a limited number with the same design before the textile runs out. You can refer to our “One on One” map of a traditional Guatemalan outfit to understand the lengths of fabric that we have to work with. We try to create a variety of sizes with the same textile, whenever possible.
Look for our Heritage Collection tag for items featuring vintage Mayan textiles, a gift from the past generation to the world. So much History!

1. How do I clean and protect my shoes and accessories?
The textiles in our products are carefully selected and treasured for their beauty, history and skilled artistry. Most of our textiles are vintage and have years of history imprinted in them. For this reason, there may be an occasional loose thread. We try our best to address any blemish we may find. We inspect every article before it leaves our warehouse. In the case that you have a loose thread from day to day wear etc., DO NOT pull the thread. You may easily clip the loose thread and that should take care of it.

1. What size should I order?
Please refer to our sizing chart and measure the foot from heel to toe. You can add ¼ of an inch for room to grow. The sizes provided are a conversion from European sizes, so please be sure to measure feet accurately. Our shoes are available in medium width only. When in doubt, you can always purchase the size they will transition into soon.
2. Will my shoes stretch at all?
Yes, slightly with use. With a short amount of time and wear, the shoes will stretch slightly and mold to your child’s feet. We highly recommend wearing socks while breaking in shoes and wearing them indoors on carpet at first, in order to increase comfort and still allow for an exchange if necessary. We do not accept returns on shoes that show any wear or use.
