It is no secret that we are a little Pom Pom obsessed and why not?! Colour makes us smile, brightens our day and keeps us inspired. That is why we are excited to release a small collection of new Poms! These are the same beautiful designs that are featured on our Jalieza Clutches. Since Christmas is coming up quickly we wanted to give you the opportunity to purchase these gorgeous ethical gifts that won't break the bank.
Each Pom Pom was handcrafted by the Jolom Mayaetik Women's Weaving Cooperative in Mexico. They are made from 100% cotton and feature a loop tie to hang on a bag, basket, door knob or wall with ease. They even make great Christmas tree decorations! Thank you to Dominga Diaz Gomez for helping to create and oversee the production of these pieces.
You can purchase the Poms online by clicking HERE!
We also have a range of Corazon (heart) Pom Poms and Flor (flower) Pom Poms in our Decor section. You can check them out HERE!
We will also be showcasing these new styles at the Peregian Beach Markets this Sunday from 7am to 12.30pm, so swing by our stall!
We had such a lovely response to our last blog post where we shared an in depth insight into one of our much loved designs, so much so that we want to keep spreading the love! Today we will be sharing more about the creators of our blouses. You have been loving our blouse designs, particularly at our local markets. We always have so much fun seeing visitors try on different styles and struggle to decide which one to take home, they are all just too beautiful!
This week on the 19th of March we celebrated Dia del Artesano or Day of the Artisans. A day to celebrate and honour the craftsmanship of artisans worldwide. We work with so many talented artisans throughout Mexico and Guatemala. As many of you know, we mainly partner with weaving or embroidery cooperatives and this week I was asking myself, do our customers know what a cooperative is? Now is the perfect time to share.
At Cielo, every one of our designs was made by hand and we think that it is so important to share where they were made, why they were made and who they were made by. We want every customer to have an understanding of where our designs come from, to realise their value and as a result cherish our pieces forever. This is the beauty of slow fashion. You can develop appreciation for the makers and form a connection with that person through their creations.
