Colombian Designers Making their International Mark

As I prepare to launch my online store in the next few months, featuring accessories and home decor from Colombia, I’m getting more and more excited to share my finds with you.

On my recent shopping trip to Colombia, I discovered quite a few jewelry designers making distinctive and creative pieces that I look forward to showing you. I also met artisans making striking handmade objects in leather, wood, straw and silver.

Coincidentaly, I’ve been seeing a good amount of press lately about Colombian fashion and accessory designers making their mark internationally. Designers like Johanna Ortiz and her ruffles and impeccable pleating; Mercedes Salazar and her playful and tropical jewelry; Pepa Pombo and her creative knits, are just a small sampling of the diverse talent coming out of Colombia.

Here are some of my finds:

Finally, check out yesterday’s Financial Times article: “Colour it happy: the rise of Colombian creatives,” where we meet two talented Colombian women that launched a consulting firm, CREO Consulting, to represent Colombian designers. They make me even more proud to be Colombian. You’ll understand why I too can’t wait to share my findings with you. 

Stay tuned!
