Happy New Year Cielo Family!
Happy new year Cielo family!
Another year doing what we love thanks to you beautiful people! Thank you so much for all of your support in 2018. At the start of each new year we like to recap our achievements from the previous year and we would love to share them with you all!
1. In 2018 made our 2nd annual donation to Mision Mexico Children’s Refuge and it was double 2017's donation!
2. We started working with 3 new Mexican women’s weaving and embroidery cooperatives.
4. We worked on and released 11 collections handcrafted by our amazing artisan partners.
5. Last but not least, we got married!!!! It was a magical day and we are so happy to now be husband and wife after 8 beautiful years.
With every achievement comes hardships but we managed to grow and learn through them all.
Now what does 2019 have in store for us? Well 2019 is all about sharing! We will continue to work alongside our incredible artisan partners and share their unique pieces with you all.
We will strive to show you more of our everyday lives and give you an insight into our artisan partners lives too. We want you to get to know us and our amazing team. This is something we know has been lacking because we have been so focused on designing and providing our artisan partners with more orders… but a new year means new goals and aspirations.
Thank you to everyone who supported us this year. Whether you bought a Cielo piece, visited us at our local markets, admired our designs, shared our business with friends and family or read our blog posts. We appreciate every one of you.
Here is to another amazing year! We wish you all the best for 2019 and hope that it brings you so much joy and happiness. Enjoy it!
Skye & Moacir.

Today we are launching a very special collection that is so close to our hearts and we want to give you all an insight into how these pieces came to be.
We often get asked about how we connect with our artisan partners. For us, we have found most of our makers by being on the ground in Mexico or Guatemala. We do a lot of research and spend time in each community. It can be difficult to form new partnerships while living in Australia, so sometimes we come across makers via the wonders of social media.
