One Of A Kind Restocks are Live!

catarina clutch cielo collectiveLast week we received another small collection from Juan and Silvia's Family Workshop in Guatemala. As I opened the box I was in absolute awe of the colours, textures and craftsmanship. Juan and Silvia started their business in Juan's hometown (one of Lake Atitlan's bustling lakeside villages) 15 years ago. Their incredible work has allowed them to travel the world and customers from all over the globe visit their workshop yearly. When we visited Juan and Silvia last year, we spent days in their workshop, sorting through a sea of colourful textiles and detailed designs.

You will notice one of a kind huipiles (traditional Maya blouses), naturally dyed ikat and custom made stripes or patterns throughout their collections. They believe in the balance of old and new textiles as it is important for them to preserve the art of Maya weaving but also work with worn textiles from local markets.

They make beautiful gifts (Christmas is only 2 months away!) as each clutch or coin pouch is unique, so you can be certain that your loved one won't have anything like it. If you would like an extra compartment, the Pana or Laguna Coin Pouches fit perfectly inside the Catarina and Azul Ikat Clutches.

Hola Cielo friends and family,

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.
