Hi there! I’m Clara, founder of Casa Luya. I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, though I’ve been a citizen of the world for the last decade, searching for different cultures and ancestral values to nurture my inner quest for self-knowledge, a sense of belonging, and to help me create a beautiful, organic and more connected perspective on life.
Having majored in design and worked in the fashion industry for a long time, I have always seen traditional artisanal techniques as a direct reflection of the cultural and social context of its surroundings. Handcrafts have the magical power of enchanting us with their beauty and storytelling quality. Connecting with this art has been my passion ever since I can remember.
