Our Chitos are made from full-grain vegetable-tanned leather. Full-grain refers to hides that have not been sanded, buffed, or snuffed (as opposed to corrected grain) to remove imperfections (or natural marks) on the surface of the hide, beautifully imperfect! 

Full-grain leathers display the natural markings and grain characteristics. The "grain" also remains to allow fiber strength and durability. Each strand is hand-cut to form the intricate basket weave! All handcrafted in Antigua Guatemala by skilled artisans who love their craft. 

Perfect for warm summer days ahead. This is slow fashion at its best! Good for artisans, good for our earth, good for you!

A note about sizing...

Please measure before you buy! Our sizes run different than what your child may currently be using, so the best thing is to measure. Do not size up, our customers report they run TTS (true to size); our boots already include extra space for socks and growth.

MEASURE TWICE BUY ONCE: Please note that we no longer offer one free size exchange for children's shoes and boots. Always measure first with socks and then look up our size chart for the best fit.

How we make them

A craftsman cuts the leather by hand, choosing the leather carefully and making sure that he follows the grain of the leather, his expert eye tells him the best way to cut each piece. He then sews each piece with accuracy and exactness only seasoned cobblers have mastered. Each upper body is placed then in the shoe form and with skilled and strength, the master cobbler dresses the form and prepares it to attach the leather sole. The soles are then layered, one on top of another, he then cuts and sands the leather to perfection. Once the glue is dry the leather Artisan then carefully builds-up the finish with an expert’s eye, and touch, to achieve an aged patina in just the right places to reflect the aged qualities only time, wear, and frequent care could have accomplished naturally.

Handmade by Artisans

Artisanal products differ from fast fashion products in that they are made in a traditional or non-mechanized way. Artisanal products are hand-crafted by skilled cobblers in small quantities with high quality and design in mind; using techniques that cannot be replicated by machines!
