“Within the described Oaxacan travel experiences offered by Thread Caravan were the precise pieces of what I’d been hoping for our team’s trip. With thoughtful communications, Caitlin easily allowed for flexibility and direction in customizing a bundle to suit our needs - a fusion of work-focused destinations, education, cultural immersion, natural splendor and down time. From the moment of our arrival to Oaxaca, we felt beyond welcomed and supported in our journey - from our stellar guide, Luis, to the comfort of our beautiful accommodations. But most of all, it was the genuine warmth and kindness of the locals who welcomed us into their homes, colorful markets, kitchens and unique spaces of their craft which made the journey next-level. Let me speak for our entire group in saying that we all left Oaxaca with our heads spinning with inspiration, our hearts and bellies full, and knowing Thread Caravan totally exceeded our expectations.”

"I was seeking out a new weaving partner in Guatemala for my brand Travel Patterns, and Caitlin helped me put together a textile lovers dream of a sourcing trip. She was wonderful to work with! Her knowledge of indigenous textiles, coupled with her desire to see marginalized communities supported through sustainable partnerships made Caitlin the perfect resource for my brand. I have had an incredible partnership with the highland weaving cooperative she recommended for over a year now, and it all started with a simple email to Thread Caravan. If you're looking for an immersive experience in another culture, seeking to learn about indigenous handicrafts in a sustainable way, or simply want to join a community of creative and inspiring folks, then reach out to Thread Caravan now. You will not be disappointed."
