How we do it
The very first, and probably also most important step in the production line, is the fabrication of the so called “huipiles”. Those huipiles are in fact the traditional Mayan garments. Each town has their very unique and individual design. To make one piece, it takes somewhere up to 4 months. We then purchase those huipiles, which are not used anymore, and integrate them in our products.
We use hand woven fabrics (Cortes) as well, which also are made without any electric machines. Those fabrics are mainly used in our squares, little bags, table sets and table runners.
We purchase different high quality leather, zippers, buttons, etc.
Usually we already have our designs, which we continuously expand. We make the different templates for all the single pieces on a CAD design software.
Now the different templates get used to cut all the necessary pieces to the specific product. This needs to be done very accurately so the shape of the final product is as exactly as it is supposed to be. k’amo lays great focus on accuracy and quality.
Our tailors bring the product to life! Each piece gets sewed in the old fashion way. To maintain the best quality, we refuse whenever possible to glue anything. Instead, we sew everything very accurately to give our unique products a long life.
Quality control. Our Tailors check each piece according to a check list. The one that produced the product is never the one that checks it. That way we follow the 4-eye principle, which helps us to maintain our high quality standards.
At last the products get individually packed and shipped.
