CARALARGA

One of the main reasons and inspiration of CARALARGA, founded in 2014, was entering the world of Mexican textiles. It is at the – old factory of yarn and textiles – “El Hercules” in Querétaro, Mexico, where the concern for creating pieces made of starched 100% raw cotton thread, arose in our minds. Qualities such as texture, color and smell of the thread, motivated a line made, not necessarily of metals, but of natural fibers. CARALARGA refers to Mexican culture and its prehispanic origins.

The experience of CARALARGA begins with the visit to Hercules we make every month. Here, Francisco, who has been working at the yarn area for more than 20 years, helps us choose the thickness of the thread that will subsequently be taken to the gummed process to acquire its texture. When this process is finished, the thread is stored on a giant steel reel. This way it prevents from tangling. Later, the thread is cut and rolled into a big “queso Oaxaca” type of ball to make it easier to bring into the workshop and start with the creative process.

Every piece that CARALARGA produces is 100% handmade. Maria del Socorro Gasca Chalqueno and Ines Hernandez Estrada, our collaborators, dedicate an important part of their time to work our collections. Thanks to their wit, professionalism, compromise, and creativity, our designs can be transformed into high quality, artisan jewelry. Their hands bring the value of our traditions and culture to every customer. We want to share the story behind each piece, the development process, its care, and more important, the hands that worked them. This way each CARALARGA can be truly understood and fully enjoyed.
