On this Women’s International Day, we interviewed two women who we admire immensely and have done a fabulous job at creating their own line.
Palma Canaria has only been around for a couple of months and has already given a new meaning to beach accessories, these are not only beach accessories, these are fun and fashionable pieces which can be worn during day and night, beach or city. Learn more about the mother-daughter duo, who have created the must-have pool and beach(or city) accessories every girl wants!
What inspired you to launch Palma Canaria?
Palma Canaria was inspired by Colombian artisans and their powerful and diverse talent, and our interest for fashion and design. We saw a huge potential in our artisans for them to bring to life our designs, and still be a piece that shows our culture and the good vibes we have.
Why the name “Palma Canaria”?
We chose the name Palma Canaria because for us it sound cheerful and tropical, and the main raw material we use is palm leafs so we felt it really special.
How would you describe the Palma Canaria customer?
Our customers are women who like to have fun, to take risks and that like to own exclusive pieces. They are travelers, dreamers and fashion lovers.
Where did the inspiration for the messages and quotes come from?
FUN. FUN. FUN . Our inspiration is seeing people smile or even laugh when they read our quotes. Or even feeling inspired, and feel the need to get away. Life and Happiness are our main messages we like to transmit.
What respective strengths do you each bring to the design process?
Monica is the creative and active part of Palma Canaria. She has many wonderful ideas everyday, and most of them are the ones you are seeing. Juliana executes Monica’s ideas and organizes the business plan to make everything possible.
What is the best thing about working with your mother/daughter?
Its really and adventure. We are knowing different facets and sides that we really didn’t know about ourselves and about each other. The best part is that you cant’s trust anyone more than your mother or your daughter, and you are working for each other best interest. Its a new phase as entrepreneurs and we can’t feel more comfortable and happy about sharing these moments together.
Monica and Juliana are a clear example that what is done with love is done well, very well.
