I have always been very creative, detail oriented, and skilled with my hands.  As far back as I can remember, I have been able to draw, paint, and sew. Creating has always come natural to me.  Being a modern Hispanic woman, raised in the cosmopolitan island of Puerto Rico, I have gathered insights and gained inspiration from many distinct and unique perspectives.  If a fabric catches my attention, it awakens my creativity which is reflected in my designs. 

When I design, I feel like a child, fearless, without prejudices and without any boundaries. I envision creativity as a never-ending and perpetually-evolving theatre production.  When the curtain is up, I allow others to view the ideas that lie deep within and that are guiding my existence at that particular point in time.  When the curtain is down, my mind fills up with life experiences that will be converted into the material that will be displayed in the next act.

My designs are undoubtedly a reflection of my Hispanic culture and heritage.  I combine  diverse materials and traditional techniques with bright colors and contemporary patterns. We are strong, colorful, expressive, warm, romantic, and we want our clothes and accessories to reflect who we are.


Ocean Collection

This collection is inspired by the Ocean. Through the windows of my house I can see and hear the waves of the Atlantic Ocean gently crashing against the beautiful warm sand. These tropical waters, inhabited by thousands of marine species, are bursting with colors and continuous movement, an ever-changing majestic landscape. Seagulls, fish, turtles, crabs, and “aguavivas” (“jellyfish”) abound. A walk along the beach invites reflection and relaxation. Each summer, right at my footsteps, hundreds of leatherback sea turtles hatch and baby turtles emerge from the sand and make their way into the seashore where the waves caress the hatchlings and welcome them into their natural habitat. The sense of wonderment and awe that we experience as one with nature gifts us with boundless inspiration which I have attempted to capture and express through my handbags.  

Each handbag is meticulously handcrafted. The design and tailoring are completely handmade, using satin and cotton fabrics, among other materials. Each handbag takes anywhere from 25 to 50 hours to finish, with hand-stitched finishing.

I always envision my handbags as small art sculptures. Each unique and with a life of its own. I hope you enjoy my collection as they are truly a labor of love that represent not only myself, but my heritage, history and culture.
