Abacus Threads  Ethical wardrobe and leather goods. Home to the #abacuspouf . Also @leeyenphotography

I started my quest for handwoven textile in Guatemala where bold colors are found everywhere! Our #abacuspouf features vintage huipiles which makes each pouf one of a kind.
I always knew that I wanted to incorporate other textiles from all around the world in the hopes to support more local artisans and continue to promote ethical practice. So I’m super excited to say that it’s happening 😬😬😬😬!!! Can you guess which country? .

Nature has such a beautiful way to teach/remind us of simple truths (warning: this post may be a bit corny but I sure love puns πŸ˜†). As a family we are currently in a season of change and transition. It’s also (almost constantly πŸ˜†) the same with @Abacusthreads . β€œResults” are slow coming and growth is sometimes painful. But I strongly believe in our mission and continue to be passionate about ethical practices in business and every day living.
No matter how frail, how small or how unnoticed your efforts may be you never know what imprint you’ll live/leave πŸ‚ .
The most important part is that you remain true to yourself (even if people walk all over you πŸ™ŒπŸ½).

It’s been awfully quiet around for many reasons! All good reasons :). One of them: we’ve been working on improving our selection of shoes! The design, the craftsmanship, the sizing and ethically sourcing durable yet more supple leather. Thank you for being so patient!

Living on an island changes you. I’ve spent most of mine on one. Born and raised in #tahiti , moved to #fiji for 3yrs and went off to college/ semi adulting for 9 in #hawaii 😱. It’s kinda funny how for most of it I was wishing for a life β€œoff the island!”. Yes, I’m obviously eating my words πŸ˜†. Moral of my (life) story? Enjoy where you are right now. Whether it be a 100yr old house, a 700 sqft studio or one side of a room. 🏑 @mango_manor
