OUR FOUNDERS

BEHIND THE LABEL

Stephanie and MarĂ­a Catalina MartĂ­nez grew up surrounded by fashion since they were kids, their parents and grandparents have devoted their lives to the clothing industry. As the third generation and heirs of this tradition, they decided to relaunch the family factory and founded Waimari.

The siblings have reinvented the concept of summer and travel staples, broadening the spectrum of options for the eclectic traveler that wants to look chic and effortless at every moment.

The sisters’ know-how and talents complement each other thriving their brand, Stephanie graduated from Parsons in Fashion Marketing, specializing in luxury brands, and had the experience of working for Gucci, Cartier and Michael Kors in New York. Maria Catalina conceptualizes Waimari’s collections, she studied fashion design at the Universidad Autónoma del Caribe, and furthered her vision and technique by taking courses at the Marangoni Institute, FIT and Parsons in New York.

At their Atelier in Barranquilla, they combine traditional heritage with modern production tenchiniques to transform the millenary know-how. Apropos with their socially responsible philosophy they work with local artisans and communities developing limited edition pieces and special lines of products, it’s in this constant exchange of cultures that Waimari’s designs are bred.

THE BRAND SEEKS TO EMPOWER NOT ONLY THE WOMEN THAT WEAR THEIR PIECES, BUT ALSO THE WOMEN THAT CREATE THEM.

This is why WAIMARI employs mostly single mothers or the bread winners of their families to help them provide for their homes. These seamstresses also train other ladies from their neighborhoods and communities, activating a dynamic chain of change that hopes to give women better and bigger opportunities.
