These unique designs find their influence in nature, her Peruvian roots and in various other cultures that have inspired her sensibilities. Each design is created with the highest care for people, animals and planet. By using the best materials available Violeta Villacorta creates what she has coined as Rustic Elegance.™ Rustic for the natural, organic, raw materials and Elegance for the fine design with which each piece is made.
Fabrics and fibers are chosen carefully for each particular design. Violeta uses organic cotton, ahimsa silk, fine linen, hemp, jute, recycled materials and repurposed garments and fabrics adding life to them by hand embroidering each piece with raffia straw and silk.
A small intimate team that Violeta has worked with through the years laboriously crafts each piece. Violeta works closely with clients to create exquisite and unique designs made especially for them. After a design has been chosen, Violeta works with the team to develop the perfect pattern and fit. Then she either personally embroiders each piece herself or has skillful, local artisans in California hand embroiderer them, adding texture and depth. Every piece takes from two to six weeks to craft, depending on the intricacy they entail. Each piece is crafted with love, care and precision. Each is a beautiful work of art to be worn and to be collected… timeless clothing that surpasses the test of time.
