This week is Fashion Revolution Week and the 5th anniversary of the devastating Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh. This week we encourage everyone to ask “who made my clothes?” and further, “who made my homewares and accessories”. At Cielo, it is so important for us to be transparent about where our pieces come from and to share with you the stories behind each artisan group that we work with.
Seasons change and at Cielo we are all about creating designs that you can wear, use and love through the seasons, every day. We don’t follow trends, but rather celebrate traditional craftsmanship and incorporate one of a kind pieces into daily life.
We are so excited to release our ‘Vistoso’ Collection full of new and restocked handcrafted designs. Vistoso translates to 'colourful' in Spanish because as you can see, these pieces celebrate colour and the joy it brings to our lives.
Everyday we are surrounded by inspiring, motivational and hard working women who are fuelled by their fight for equality within their own communities. Today (and every day) we want to acknowledge their strength and perseverance, as these women have achieved so much through their activism. These are stories that you don’t often hear, because as women, the struggles that our artisan partners or family face in Mexico, are very different to what I face in this day and age.
We are in the mindset that everyday is the right day to give and receive love! However, sometimes we feel that it is special to give your partner a token of love on Valentine’s Day. Valentine's Day is coming up on the 14th of February and we have a few ethically made gift ideas to help you choose a treasure for that special someone.
