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 concern for people and the environment. 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.
While most of the garments and accessories are completely handmade by Violeta, there are times when she works with a small team to carefully craft each piece. Violeta works closely with clients to create exquisite and unique designs made especially for them. After a design has been chosen, the perfect pattern and fit is developed. Each piece is handcrafted and hand embroidered, 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 collected… timeless clothing that surpasses the test of time.
