About The Designer
COLORINDIO was founded in 2009 by Pola Parlange and Libia Moreno with a mission to weave stories of ancient cultures through fabric.
Guided by fair-trade principles, they started a collaboration with weavers’ communities in Chiapas, based on cooperation, friendship and values of equity and balance, providing a steady income for more than 150 women.
Each cushion cover, throw or placemats featuring in our collection is born out of this relationship and it’s an expression of weaving traditions and the rich cultural diversity of Mexico.
