With the importance of our commercial relations, we created our logo with the Petra mosaic in mind, drawing a goddess in all her splendor, a symbol of beauty, femininity, and the power that just a woman has, we added our name, and we made it by hand to show our nature.
Lorena Medinilla a transplant from Mexico City has integrated her cultural influences into her designs. Over time with our success in Houston, boutiques such as Tootsies, Khul-Linscomb, and The Museum Shop create a demand to expand later to Anthropologie, Free People, and others which required more production. Lorena's husband, Arturo, is the administrator of operations. Lorena and Arturo remain the sole administrators of the company with the occasional help of their sons and our caring team. We are a proud family business and all handmade in the USA.
