Innovation Award Winner - Accessories Award

mercia stela and paula santos

Talented sisters, Mercia and Paula, work together on their jewellery business, MaosdaTerra.

Mercia is the designer and Paula works on the business side. Together they work with some 85 skilled artisans who produce alluring pieces for Caipora.

Paula pays special attention to ensure suppliers apply the same concepts we work for, maintaining ethics for change throughout the chain.

During the collection creation process, Mercia says, “It starts from the feel and look of different materials as they are almost alive, with personality”. She respects the different forms and shapes of natural materials, emphasising even more the uniqueness of their collections in each individual piece.
