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.

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.

The Story Behind Our Most Popular Piece
The Story Behind Our Most Popular Piece

March 15, 2019

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.
