mercia stela and paula santos
Mercia is the designer and Paula develops the business concept. 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.
