Born in the Netherlands and raised in Carcassonne in southern France, Paloma van den Akker studied Design in Nîmes and Toulouse, which earned her a BTS degree in Applied Arts. After eight years of flying Air France, love brought her to Mexico. Through her passion for Yucatan and interest for local craftsmanship, she discovered the amazing artistry of local artisans, which is how she came up with the idea to create a line of products for women and the home using local, natural materials through traditional techniques, lovingly handcrafted by talented artisans. Designs are inspired by the beautiful fauna, flora, light, colors and techniques found in Yucatan.
