Adios 2017 & Hola 2018! Thank you!

What a year 2017 was! Our achievements in 2017 are definitely cause for a celebration. It is not often that we stop and recognise our own successes. Often it feels like you are striving day to day to grow and accomplish everything on your list without ever really taking the time to congratulate yourself. Now is our time!

cielo collective jalieza shoulder bagIn 2017 we launched over 10 collections with our 4 incredible artisan partners in Mexico and Guatemala; The Weaving Women of Santo Tomas Jalieza, Jolom Mayaetik Women’s Weaving Cooperative, Juan and Silvia’s Family Workshop and the Single Mothers Cooperative of San Juan La Laguna. We also formed a beautiful new relationship with the Teixchel Women’s Weaving Association in San Pedro La Laguna and launched our first product line with them! It wasn't all rosy, there were certainly struggles, however at the end of the day it always came together with the help of our artisan partners.

Not only that… we are now showcasing our products at The Travelling Kimono’s flagship store in the Noosa Junction Pavilion.

At the end of the financial year we also sent our first donation to Mision Mexico Children's Refuge. 5% of the profits from each purchase was given to the refuge and was only possible because of you! This was our goal from the very start and we hope that this donation can grow year by year.

They are all masters of their craft and we are so lucky to be working alongside them. We also wouldn’t have been able to achieve this without your support. You have all celebrated us since day 1 and we are so so lucky to have such loyal customers, friends and family. Your continued support allows us and our artisan partners to keep creating. THANK YOU!

2018 is set to be another amazing year. We have already launched a selection of new Jalieza Clutches and have also restocked some favourites including our Verde and Indigo Ikat Throws. They are online now in our new arrivals section.

Lastly, we are wishing you all a beautiful year! Remember to take time to celebrate your successes this year, no matter how big or small.
