This year at PAOLITA we are more dedicated than ever to bringing you the very best in artisan gorgeousness, and our lifestyle edit of curated guest brands is no exception.

The latest addition to our family of guest brands is none other than columbian, female-founded homeware and accessories designer Mercedes Salazar. This is a  brand rooted in culture, craft and ancestral techniques wherein each piece focuses on carrying a message, telling stories and evoking joy, all while honouring the hands of artisans using ancestral techniques.

By nature, each product is completely unique and authentic and as the designer shares ‘Each product is an art piece because to create it, I have taken the path of spirituality, in which Colombia has been my starting point’.

As a child, Mercedes used to collect and create her own treasures using found materials such as clay, wood, glass and wool which led her to study artisanal and contemporary jewellery in Mexico, now focusing on creating these treasures for others. Salazar proudly represents her Columbian roots and feels a deep responsibility and spiritual tie to the land there. This is why she draws on the support of more than 200 Colombian artisans who throughout their generations continue to maintain ancestral artisan techniques and bring to the fashion world a proposal full of creativity and meaning.

By nature, each product is completely unique and authentic and as the designer shares  Each product is an art piece because to create it, I have taken the path of spirituality, in which Colombia has been my starting point’.

We hope that our edit of Mercedes Salazar here at PAOLITA helps to inspire joy and love,  which as the designer explains “carry with them the sound of the wind, the smell of the mountains and the warmth of the sun”.

Make sure to keep an eye out for our second drop of Mercedes Salazar treasures coming soon…

 

We look forward to a prosperous and joyful 2022!
