nautical collection inspiration

Last year when I was designing my Nautical Collection, I was inspired by Costa Rica's beautiful beaches {my home country}. At the time I was living in Bolivia where the nautical themes are not very popular since it is a landlocked country, where if you want to go to the beach you would have to travel to any of the neighboring countries.

I worked with different sizes of crochet needles to get to the perfect weight and width on the crochet chains for the necklaces and bracelets.


Anchors are present in the collection in different sizes. They adorn the linen hats, the tote bags, the key rings and necklaces.
Instead of the classic white, I used khaki to contrast with the navy blue and red.
