THE CAROLINA STORY
Carolina, a lifestyle label made with love, was created when our creative director Carolina Giraldo saw a gap in the market for lifestyle clothing and accessories that were versatile in function, good quality, well priced and unique against excessive mainstream productions.
Our first range consisted of 6 bags and a few belts and since those humble beginnings Carolina has emerged as a successful lifestyle label with distribution in stores all around Australia.
In 2013, we launched our first clothing range which has quickly enjoyed the same success as our accessories range and in consolidating our company as a well recognised lifestyle label.
WHY WE'RE DIFFERENT
Today Carolina has a large range of leather accessories, shoes, homewares, hats, giftware, knitwear and clothing. Our distinct point of difference is that 90% of our manufacturing is made by hand in Colombia - South America.
Here we have a large team of talented artisans who translate all of our designs into beautifully handmade products using only the best textures and natural materials for our very special customers.
We believe that when we make products with love they are full of meaning.
Our products are unique.
We own a factory in Colombia where most of our products are handcrafted.
We can track the origins all the way up to the person who cuts the leather and who sews the clothing.
Here at Carolina Lifestyle, our durable and
soft leather is handcrafted from the finest
Colombian cowhide by craftsmen in our own
factory, some of which have been working
with leather for over 25 years.
The craftsmanship is of the highest quality and a signature card of the creator is included with each bag.
We only use leather from animals that have been killed for food. In Colombia, animals cannot be killed just for the leather so it is a by-product.
We want to fill lives with beautiful designs. We want to
leave behind positive and memorable experiences
for our customers through beautiful pieces they can
take away and value.
Our products easily move from day to night, corporate to leisure and are tailored specially for the natural curves of women.
We focus on natural, luxurious and feel good fabrics such as silk, linen, tencel, cotton, alpaca, cashmere and viscose. Designed with our customer in mind, the pieces are easy to mix and match. They are not only stylish but they are comfortable and versatile too.
Here at Carolina we value quality. Our artisans understand this and so each piece is handmade with skill and love, whether it be a clutch, shoes or clothing.
Thank you to their invaluable skills and work that results in the beautiful range that is Carolina Lifestyle.
