Crafting Timeless Collections in a Modern Era

Karla started Cuyana with the vision of creating a global design house that inspires intentional buying through pieces that are crafted with integrity. Shilpa was drawn to Cuyana for the opportunity to create products rich in meaning, quality, and story. The name Cuyana means “to love” in Quechua, in honor of the craftsman who made their first product. Launched in 2013, Cuyana has expanded past its original vision of classic totes to incorporating entire wardrobe selections for women.
