The Global Wares of Cuyana + A Seattle Spring Soirée

Cuyana Sustainable Style and a Seattle Spring Soirée

Let's face it, sustainability and style don't always manage to come together successfully. But Cuyana founders Karla Gallardo and Shilpa Shah have succeeded in what can sometimes seem the almost impossible. Custom designing their own products, they source and have created country-specific, limited-edition collections that celebrate each country's culture and local craftsmanship.

Cuyana Products

As if that wasn't enough of a great start, a percentage of their profits are donated to "charity: water" in an effort to help support the charity's mission in providing safe drinking water to communities around the world. Does it get much better than that? Um, yeah. Because they also offer free shipping and free returns (on U.S. orders)! I know, right?! (And their reusable gift boxes? Don't get me started! Love!)

To top things off, Cuyana is throwing a "Spring Soirée" in Seattle next Tuesday, April 30th, from 5pm to 8pm at Black Bottle with myself and Cassandra of Coco+Kelley being your hosts! And you're invited! Come and enjoy cocktails and bites while we peruse Cuyana's wares together! You'll get to see Cuyana's products up close and personal plus get 10% off that night. When you RSVP (Yes, Seattle! R. S. V. P! You know what I'm talking about!), select "The Bedlam of Beefy" in the drop-down on the RSVP page and you'll have the chance to win a gorgeous leather tote. And if you refer 5 friends you'll score a free canvas tote as Cuyana's "thank you" for helping spread the word (details on the RSVP page).

Let's get our sustainable, stylish swag on, kids! Click the image below to sign up and I'll see you there!

  1. I'll be there! Right at 5 and staying for a little bit until the M's game that night that I have tickets to. Looking forward to seeing you :)

    1. Hahahaha! OMGosh! I was JUST writing you a tweet to see if you could make it, Brianne! I love it when that happens! SO glad that you can make it to the event!!! I'll be there early to help set up and will look forward to clinking over a complimentary cocktail or two! :)

  2. So great to meet you and Kendall! I haven't even taken my beautiful scarf and tote out of the shopping bag yet since I'm supposed to be packing to move. Some sort of shopping denial which I'm sure to recover from soon enough. Great event - thanks so much!

    1. It was awesome to meet you in person, Tiffany! As far as the scarf goes, after the weather we've been having you don't *really* need it right now. Right? Although, probably will make a good accessory with your parka on the 4th of July if tradition continues. ;) Thanks for coming and supporting!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I always appreciate your thoughts. Your comment will appear as soon as I can publish it.

p.s. - Contrary opinions or constructive criticism are also fine but "The Bedlam" doesn't serve as a platform for random (or anonymous) acts of offensiveness. Rude? Deleted.
