From Where It All Began - A Glimpse At The Early Days Of Akasha

From humble beginnings at local markets on the shores of Lake Atitlan, in just two short years we've come a long way! We wanted to share with you, memories of where it all began; the highs (selling our first collection at the local market), the lows (two long days shooting the straps in a dark room) and everything in between.

A big thank-you to everyone who has helped and supported us along the way x

 Our very first collection!!!
