I recently came across the brand Ix Style, and couldn’t wait to share it with you.
Ix means “water” in Mayan, and this sandal business was launched to give children in Guatemala and elsewhere clean water.
The beautiful footwear is handcrafted by Guatemalan artisans, who are ethically treated, and paid properly for their work.
Many children have no option but to trek long distances to collect water which is often unclean. This takes time away from their education. For every pair that is purchased, Ix Style donate clean drinking water to children. This not only helps them to thrive, but also frees up their time so they can attend school.
This traditional Mayan multi-coloured option is bright and beautiful for summer.
The navy colour is more muted, and complements the raw colour of the woven leather.
The white offers an easy-to-wear neutral.
Try the neon trend with the yellow version.
The huarache sandal style is on-trend now, and set to stay thanks to the launch of the Nike version.
Ix Style also offer kids sandals, which are mini versions of the adults’.
