Catalina Lemaitre was born in Cartagena – Colombia, the former economist, founded Calamarie in 2008. Her pieces are handcrafted by dozens of women artisans across Colombia. Together, Catalina and these talented artisans create thoughtful designs that incorporate traditional techniques and recycled materials (orange peel, seeds, vegetable ivory).

Calamarie's partner artisans work collectively in women cooperatives or independently from their homes, so they can take care of their families while earning an income.
