Our Sophia collection represents a mix of traditional, ethnic Turkish styles and bold, rich Mexican colors. The designer, Karla Diaz Cano, born and raised in Mexico City, was greatly influenced by the colors around her as she was growing up: in its flowers, its fruits, its architecture and its art. After traveling to Turkey a few times, she created this collection that combines the essence of both rich, beautiful cultures. These pieces were handmade by our team of Turkish artisans using gold plated bronze and a mix of semiprecious stones, fabrics, and strings.
One of our most important values is caring for Mother Earth. By using traditional hand-making techniques that have been used by artisans from different cultures around the world for hundredths of years, and using environmentally-friendly packaging, we make sure that our production remains as low-impact as possible.
