In 2012, Calamarie continues to think big about our collections, our artisans, and ways of giving back. It is the artisans who really in the end support us and give our work meaning. Mery and her sister Cecilia, our head artisans, continue to lead our efforts in Colombia, dreaming up new creations for our collections. They inspire me each day through their creativity, dedication, persistence and faith.
To honor these amazing women and YOU, we are committed to building a socially responsible business you can be proud to support. We are resolved to act like a stream - to flow with the challenges, embrace uncharted currents and test new approaches to yield little treasures made from the earth’s natural resources and by artisans who create with their heart. We promise to deliver honest beauty and the joy that comes with it.
Join us this year in loving all things beautiful and in living like the stream –doesn’t that sound so much more fun than being the rock?
In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins - not through strength, but through persistence. -Buddha
