Our Sell Out Summer Range of Blouses & Dresses!
Hey there Cielo friends and family,
The new year is well and truly behind us and we hope that yours got off to a good start. We were so busy over the Christmas period that we didn’t get the chance to launch our Bonita Blouse, Bella Blouse and Bonita Summer Dress styles to the Cielo online store.
The traditional floral design on each piece was hand embroidered by women from the Xochipilli Artisan Group in San Gabriel Chilac, Mexico. The embroidered designs are one of a kind so choose the one that speaks to you the most. You will never see the same design again.
Due to the popularity of these traditional Mexican designs, there are copies being produced all around the world. Our Bonita and Bella styles were made by the original creators in the town where this embroidered design originated from, making them even more special. The Bonita Summer Dresses are slightly different to our original Bonita Dress as they are a shorter style. They are a little more breezy and perfect for the warmer months. If you are taller they can also be worn over swim and with shorts or with leggings in the cooler months.
We hope that you love the Bonita and Bella designs! Due to Cyclone Oma our market has been cancelled this weekend but our online store is open 24/7. What better reason to stay indoors, sit back, relax and scroll through our new styles in the comfort of your own home.You are also welcome to take 10% off your order this weekend by entering the code word RAINYDAY10 at the checkout.The offer expires at 11.30pm Sunday night Australian Eastern Standard Time and is valid for all online and local pick up orders.

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.
