Cuyana, which means “to love” in Quechua (the Andrean tribal language) is not only a brand inspired by far away travels, but its collections of beautifully crafted and modern pieces make fabulous staples for fashion conscious ladies who don’t want to sacrifice style for comfort while on the go - in true Travelle spirit.
Cuyana will get us to our destination dressed impeccably in a warm scarf and soft oversized sweater or cape perfect for layering, and help us stay organized with handcrafted travel accessories. The pebble leather passport wallets and case travel sets fit in a shopper bag or tote to match. Even our favorite gadgets are covered - iPhone, iPad and Laptop cases from Argentina come in a variety of colors and can be personalized with a monogram like most leather items on the site. Simply fabulous!
Every season founders Karla Gallardo and Shilpa Shah travel the world to source fine materials native to countries including India, Turkey, Ecuador, Panama and various locations in South America and they work with local artisans to create pieces that celebrate the unique culture’s heritage. This means that while the pieces are versatile and timeless, each collection brings something new to the table.
Cuyana’s initiative to pay the “love” forward comes as an added bonus. Its Lean Closet Movement makes it easy for us to share clothes that we are no longer excited about wearing with a lady in need. When receiving our newly purchased items from Cuyana, we'll find a reusable bag we can use to send back a gently used article of clothing we no longer wish to keep. Cuyana takes care of passing it on to vetted nonprofits like Clothes4Souls or the Salvation Army and rewards our act of kindness with a $10 Cuyana credit.
Doesn't that make looking good on the go feel even better?
