Catarina Mina

Brazil

Awarded in 2015 the VOGUE Brazil Ecoera prize and in 2016 the 3M Brazil Design Award.
Catarina Mina bags are about people - and inside every crocheted piece is a ‘thank you’ card, signed by the artisan who made the piece weaving both their love and personal stories into each item - and which serves as a ‘Certificate of Authenticity’. Celina Hissa is the visionary behind this project. Her career began in advertising, but almost 15 years ago her eye for design, and love of crafts, urged her to conceive Catarina Mina. In 2014 she completed her masters Thesis on horizontal production within collectives of artisans - and with such precious organizational knowledge and field experience on hand, she was finally ready to take her brand and the local artisan community to new heights, but more than creating beautifully crocheted bags she wanted to make a difference. Therefore, CM made its production and costs fully transparent to her customers, so that before the bags reached their hands, they knew that their purses had been touched by - not only Celina, who conceived their designs, but also the artisans who knitted and the seamstresses who added the finishing touches.
