The people of Guatemala are the inspiration for the company. We are passionate about creating sustainable business practices and relationships with the community and families that we work with in Guatemala.
We are intentionally thoughtful about every single step in our production process, and how that impacts the artisans that we support.
Sadie Tidland-Naith is a professional stylist, philanthropist and the Founder of Tia Sadie. Since 2016, Sadie has been spending a few weeks of every year volunteering her skills to the community of Sumpango, Guatemala. She works closely with the local orphanage to provide haircuts for the children who are HIV positive. Her bond with the children and nuns grew quickly and they took to calling her “tia,” which in Spanish means aunt. This incredible community is what inspired Sadie to launch Tia Sadie in 2017.
