Today we turn 2 and what a year it has been! We have achieved so much and we can’t thank you enough for all of your love and support. Cielo would be nothing without our artisan partners, our dedicated customers and amazing supporters. Thank you!
As for the past year, Cielo has continued to grow little by little and we couldn’t be more proud. We are so happy to now be working with 2 new women’s weaving and embroidery groups; the Xochipilli Artisan Group from Puebla and La Flor De Xochistlahuaca from Guerrero.
This year we have created 16 collections with our artisan partners, with 4 to be released in the coming months. If you bought a Cielo piece over the past year, you have made this possible and have helped provide work to 7 different artisan groups.
In July this year we also gave our 2nd yearly donation to Mision Mexico Children’s Refuge. As many of you know each year we donate 5% of our profits to Mision Mexico and this year’s donation was double last years total! What an achievement! Thank you to our beautiful customers, for making this possible.
This year we also ticked off another goal! We found our first stockist! The lovely ladies at The Travelling Kimono stock our Jalieza Diamond Clutches in their Noosa store. This is a partnership that we are so proud of.
As of this month, we will now be attending a market every weekend which has always been our goal! You can find us at the Peregian Beach Markets, every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month and at the Sunshine Coast Collective Markets in Coolum Beach, every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month.
We have also celebrated quite a few personal milestones this year! Last month Moacir and I became husband and wife after 8 years of commitment to one another. It was such a special day and we can’t wait to share more about our wedding with you all someday soon. Now our focus is back on Cielo and we can’t wait to bring you more designs from our incredibly skilled artisan partners throughout Mexico and Guatemala.
To say thank you for your support over the past year, we are offering 15% off all online and studio orders from Wednesday until end of day Saturday. Simply use the code CIELOTURNS2 at the checkout. To continue the celebrations into next week, we will also be giving away a special Cielo piece. Make sure to be following us on Instagram for all the details!
Thank you so much and here is to another amazing year!
Skye & Moacir.
