Mi Clarita looks to empower you to express your unique beauty, your brilliant self. We offer products made by artisans and artists that you will be proud to wear or gift. Because our products are all handmade, no two are exactly alike. This is what is so special about our products: the artist’s soul and creativity is revealed.
To share the richness of the Mexican culture. Mexican artesanos create beautiful handcrafts that reflect Mexico's rich cultural diversity.
To support Mexican artistic traditions by paying a fair price for the artisans' work. In other words, the price we pay is determined by the artisan.
We are honored to partner with Maria Victoria to bring you handmade, beautiful bags. Maria Victoria works with artisans who are a part of social reform enterprises in Mexico. There, they learn to make high-end goods. This type of long-term rehabilitation program gives them the opportunity to have a second chance at success. It allows them to be creative, work independently, and have an improved quality of life. It gives them a strong sense of purpose. With every purchase, you too contribute to the betterment of others.
We also work with Erica Maree Designs where traditional fabrics and textiles are transformed into unique products. Erica Maree is dedicated to supporting living wages, fair trade and sustainable practice for our beloved Mexican artisans. Every Erica Maree product sale supports a collective of artisans, seamstresses, their families and communities in Mexico.
Inspired by bright colors and fabrics that sparkle, our products are sure to make a statement. We hope you love them as much as we do! Express your brilliant self!
Who is Clarita?
The owner's sister's name was Clara, which means 'Bright'. Since Mexican handcrafts are of bright colors, the name seemed quite fitting.
Clara passed away of ovarian cancer in 2014, less than a year after diagnosis. Naming the store after her is a tribute to our Clarita and we donate part of the profits to cancer research.
