On a breezy afternoon, Karlis and Julian were walking down Puerto Vallarta’s Malecón. They were mesmerized by the lights, colours, sounds and textures surrounding them; they could breathe happiness in every corner.
During this exhilarating walk, Karlis and Julian noticed that everything surrounding them was vibrant, bright-coloured and full of life!
At this moment, the thought of a colourful way of life was forever tattooed in their minds.
When Karlis and Julian went back to Vancouver, BC, where they reside currently, they began looking to re-live what they had experienced during their trip to Mexico and their respective cultures from Venezuela and Colombia.
They wanted a colourful way to express themselves; a vibrant style of wardrobe with a powerful message that would empower them to live their lives to the fullest.
They began to search for a store that would vividly represent their colourful experience and cultural traditions.
They were looking to find an exciting brand that would use the colours and design styles they loved; an apparel brand created to energize and inspire. A brand that would allow them to show their identity in a refreshing way.
After unsuccessful attempts in finding exactly what they were looking for, Karlis and Julian decided to begin expressing their bright-coloured ideas through their own clothing.
They decided to incorporate their vivid and colourful memories and traditions into garment designs which would then become their very own apparel brand - and then Shop Calavera was born.
