who makes our clothes

From its beginnings Carolina K has incorporated in her designs authentic traditional embroidery from communities in Mexico and Peru.  From design to production this pieces are made by the same communities that started this ancestral technics. This work is made with patience and love, surrounded by nature and family. 

 

OAXACA

One of the most iconic Carolina K styles is the Oaxaca crochet top and dress. Since 2013, we have put together a group of artisan women from a small town up in the mountains of Oaxaca City who make this unique style using traditional crochet and weaving techniques, as well as traditional mexican fabrics. Most of the women of this small town are part of the process of making these timeless pieces. 

The Oaxaca Crochet pieces are handmade, every stitch made by hand, its shoulder pads hand loomed, taking a week for each piece to be made.

 

CHIAPAS

One of the textile- richest areas in the world, Chiapas is the home of a group of artisans with whom we develop our accessories and home decor.  Made by hand and using traditional techniques that have been part of these communities for generations, such as the back straps and foot pedal loom, this group of families weave belts, bags and fabrics, embroidering details in our ponchos and huipiles and dyeing natural fibers for our collections.
