We are very proud to be part of the Eco-friendly, Ethical, and Sustainable Fashion awakening companies. When we started Casa Lima; our focus was to find a way to help and empower women in South America by creating something useful and something that would not damage the world.
No one on the team was a businessperson; we did not know how to start a business, how we were going to find a supplier or any of those beginning questions a small business may have. What we did have was a strong desire to design something that would empower the women behind the creative process and the women wearing it.
After a lot of research to find our beautiful team, it took us time and effort before becoming one of the few online sources of sustainable design goods. Everyone in our team from the people harvesting and prepping the material, the women that hand-woven each of all your beautiful bags, and the women behind the brand we are all very proud to be using natural materials and doing our best to have a circular fashion company.
All our products are handmade of natural organic fibers and fabrics; we used eco-friendly dyes for coloring and recyclable packing. It takes approx. 3 to 5 days to produce each of our bags; some of the bags would take a little bit longer, which is fine because we make small batches and as the orders come. Every bag is handmade with love and ancestral techniques; this is the magical side of our company. We loved reimaging our traditions and keeping them alive. We are planning to grow and to keep evolving, empowering, and creating for every woman around the world. Thank you for being part of our journey!
