Embracing Empowerment: A Captivating Collaboration with LanaLlama

Embracing Empowerment: A Captivating Collaboration with LanaLlama

I'm beyond excited to share with you the incredible collaboration that recently took place between Kantua, my beloved artisan jewelry line featuring the exquisite Punto Peruano wire technique and Peruvian gemstones with the eco-friendly handmade women's accessories brand, LanaLlama.
It's been an inspiring journey that celebrates Peruvian artisan culture while empowering women in the most beautiful way.

Let me take you behind the scenes of this remarkable partnership!

The Meeting of Minds:

When I first crossed paths with Caty, the passionate owner of LanaLlama, it was like finding a kindred spirit. We both shared a deep commitment to artisan craftsmanship and sustainable practices, and we immediately knew that collaborating would result in something truly magical. This is the magic of Instagram because we connected via social media before meeting in person. 

I spoke with Caty about Kantua's projects for the summer and Caty graciously offered her Long Island showroom. This is when the idea of collaboration was born. LanaLlama has the perfect setting fort this exciting venture, creating an environment that radiated inspiration and creativity.

The Ethereal Photoshoot:

To capture the essence of our collaboration, we arranged a breathtaking photoshoot at a local beach in Long Island. The sun-kissed sand and the crashing waves provided an idyllic backdrop that perfectly complemented the intricate artistry of Kantua's jewelry and LanaLlama's eco-friendly accessories. It was a true fusion of nature's beauty and the craftsmanship we hold dear.

A Stellar Team:

Our collaboration wouldn't have been complete without the incredible talents that joined us. The makeup artist Sandra worked her magic, skillfully enhancing the natural beauty of our model and adding an extra touch of enchantment to our creations. Georgina, our stunning model, exuded confidence and grace, embodying the empowerment that lies at the heart of our collaboration. And let's not forget the wonderful Peruvian influencer, Judy, whose authentic voice and cultural perspective brought an extra layer of richness to the project.
