De La Fuente
When we asked Kara Fuentes about the inspiration behind De La Fuente, her story begins with solo travels around the world, from Morocco to Vietnam, sourcing jewelry, clothing, and textiles.
Thanks to family ties, her journey led to Mexico where she discovered an artist in Oaxaca who sparked her passion for millinery. Over time, she learned to design and press hats.

All hats are handmade, ethically produced, and sourced from natural fibers in Mexico and Ecuador. Don't miss the sterling silver and brass rings, a nod to antiquity and vintage Mexican designs.
Fast forward to present day, Kara splits time between California and Oaxaca, drawing inspiration from the craftsmanship of traditional artisans, infusing elements of art, history, and romance picked up on travels abroad. We can't get enough...
