Our Story

Who we are

cielo collective tradition creativity integrity

We are Moacir & Skye and together we create Cielo Collective. 

  • Cielo: (pron: See – eh – lo), Spanish word for heaven or sky – noun: a place or state of supreme happiness.
  • Collective: -adj: formed by collection.
With a mutual love for tradition, creativity and human connection, we personally travel to artisan villages throughout Mexico and Guatemala. Here we develop and source beautifully handcrafted pieces created by highly skilled artisans. Residing in Noosa, Australia our pieces resonate with our coastal lifestyle and are essentials for wandering the globe, a cosy corner in your home or for days by the sea.


What we do

cielo collective handmade tradition creativity integrity

We search cities and market places, creating connections with artisans, to bring you unique pieces made from tradition, creativity and integrity. Most of the artisans we work with are members of established weaving cooperatives and small family businesses. Each of their unique designs are made in their own homes, workshops or cooperative groups and they decide the value of their creations.

We are proud to say that Cielo is entirely a collaborative effort built on a trusting relationship as we work with our artisan partners directlyWhile we are in Australia we are in constant communication with them all via WhatsApp, Skype and e-mail to continue developing designs and to strengthen our relationships.

Why we do it

cielo collective why we do it

Our focus is on sharing the beauty, skill, spirit and tradition behind each artisan group so that you can develop a deeper appreciation for their art and their culture. They do not work for us, we work together to exchange ideas and designs, with the purpose of reaching a global market. Our hope is that as we grow, we can work with each artisan for years to come and provide them with more of a sustainable income.
