Behind the Design: Bolivian Embroidery

F15_TripPic_MH_ 2647It’s all in the details… take a close look! Our August designs were inspired by the markets of La Paz, Bolivia – a city filled with beautifully embroidered clothing. Everywhere you turn, you see brightly colored shawls, skirts and sweaters. We couldn’t believe how intricate every day wear was. We also had the chance to see traditional folk costumes worn during celebrations. These pieces too were embroidered with beautiful floral designs. Take a look at some of our girl’s pieces that feature our take on Bolivian embroidery.

Baby Styles Inspired by La Paz Markets

IMG_4275The inspiration behind our sweet baby girl prints and graphics stem directly from the street markets of La Paz, Bolivia. We were inspired most by the embroidered folk costumes sold in the mercados and worn by the locals. Each garment has extraordinary detail… embroidered flowers in every color of the rainbow with gilded finishes. We wanted to bring this uniqueness back to our collection, here you’ll see how it shines through our baby girl prints. Learn more about the inspiration behind our pieces below.

What do you know about Llamas?

While traveling through Argentina and Bolivia, you’re sure to see llamas! We found them roaming the Andes Mountains, on far away farms and throughout tiny towns. Llamas are native to South America have been a friend to people since the time of the Incas when they were first used as pack animals, carrying goods and wares over the rough terrain. They have a soft wool coat that keeps them warm throughout the winter which is often used to make soft luxurious sweaters and hats! Llamas are also guardians for sheep and goats, protecting them against many predators. In honor of the many llamas we found along our way, you’ll find several llama inspired pieces this fall – from a photoreal tee to a sweet print for baby, there’s a type of llama for everyone. We’ve rounded up fun facts you might not have known about llamas and don’t miss this fall’s inspired designs!
