We believe, there is always a story behind every piece of clothing.
From the origins of materials used to the artisans that created them.
It’s about time these stories are heard.
there's only one of them in the world like there's only one of you! 🧡
Tiendita hopes to build a community that focuses on the importance of slow fashion and participates in the circular consumption system.
We invite you to build meaningful bonds to the piece you are wearing and cherish them with us.
Let’s invest in thoughtful purchases and creations.
piece no.1 - the cachemira jumper
100% pure cashmere jumper, a crochet creation by Dora in Mexico City that took 80 hours to make. A soft Spring jumper full of blossom and joy
Dora's mother, Julia, has been selling Mexican sweets and trinkets in the streets for many years. Julia is usually sat outside of the church or supermarket in Polanco with Dora.
Dora would come to the market to accompany her mother, and to pass the time she would crochet beautiful market bags alongside her. Dora actually learned to crochet from Julia.
Dora herself is a mother of 3 and has been struggling through the pandemic. Her crochet work has boosted her monthly income to support her family and we are so happy to have her on the team with us and be able to provide her with a steady flow of crochet
piece no.2 - the lalila duster
Such precious fabric must not go to waste - hence why we created this duster in order to utilise each and every inch of this fabric.
