New Arrivals Just in Time for the Easter Break!
Seasons change and at Cielo we are all about creating designs that you can wear, use and love through the seasons, every day. We don’t follow trends, but rather celebrate traditional craftsmanship and incorporate one of a kind pieces into daily life.
The Weaving Women of Santo Tomas Jalieza in Mexico wove each one of these designs completely by hand on a backstrap loom. This collection took just over 2 months to complete and the photo below gives you a little insight into the creative process. This is slow fashion at its best! Women working at their own pace in their own homes, surrounded by family.

The Jalieza pieces are some of my favourites as their texture is absolutely divine. They are also pieces that I use every day due to their practical design and strong weave. These new neutral beauties have been a hit at our local artisan markets, so be quick!
We are also very happy to share our new vibrant Corazon Pom Poms and Pom Pom Tassels. Perfect for brightening up every day! Hang them from a door knob, on a hook or on your favourite basket or bag. They also make beautiful baby shower gifts as they look gorgeous in kids rooms.
These handcrafted and colourful pieces were all created by the Jolom Mayaetik Weaving Cooperative in Mexico, a collection that was also 2 months in the making. The quality and creative process behind every piece excels all of our expectations every time. Their pieces will be cherished by us and our customers forever!
Our new arrivals are now available online and will also be with us at the Peregian Beach Markets this Sunday the 1st of April. All online orders placed during the Easter long weekend will be posted on Tuesday next week.
Have a lovely and safe Easter break with your loved ones.
