Summer Style with our new Blouse Collection!

We are so excited to release our new blouse collection! Due to the handmade nature of each piece, the collection took 2 months to be completed and we are so proud of the end result. Our artisan partners from the Jolom Mayaetik Women's Weaving Cooperative hand embroidered each design with such skill and beauty. The quality, texture and combination of colours are breathtaking.

Knowing that you are wearing a piece that was hand embroidered stitch by stitch is so special and rare. How beautiful it is to wear a design created from tradition and by the artisan herself. Each blouse comes with the name of the artisan who created it, so you can honour her.

We are always here to help with sizing and there are measurements online to help you decide.

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.
