Sí Collective x Fashionkind
Giving you access to the best of Latin American design for seasons to come. Each designer honours their commitment to the men and women who create their pieces — masters of ancient weaving and crafting techniques that are at risk of disappearing if not properly supported.
After years of traveling the world collecting unique treasures, Colombian socialite Chiqui de Echavarria opened the doors to her renowned store in the historic center of Cartagena, Colombia. Constantly evolving, Casa Chiqui has introduced a unique line of jewelry and accessories designed by Chiqui and produced by 94 local artisans from indigenous and rural communities from all over Colombia. Mostly women heads of household, they help bring Chiqui’s designs to life using centuries-old techniques and natural, locally sourced fibers like iraca and cumare palm leaves.
