Cuyana is a San Bay area company run by founders Shilpa Shah and Karla Gallardo who travel the globe on the lookout for chic, high quality materials, think textiles and metals, that can be transformed by local craftsmen into chic, high quality and limited-edition goods and accessories that they sell on their web store. Cuyana donates a percentage of their proceeds to Charity:water, a non-profit organization that provides solutions for clean water worldwide.


Check out their website, and then come shop Cuyana on Tuesday, April 30 at Black Bottle in Belltown from 5 to 8 p.m. during their local trunk show co-hosted by the amazing Cassandra Lavalle, from Coco+Kelley and Bradford Crowder, from The Bedlam of Beefy, who I don’t know personally, but who likes a lot of my photos on Instagram, so I love him already.

“I'm excited to be co-hosting such a fun event with Bradford celebrating this boutique company from the Bay area,” says Lavalle. “Cuyana's pieces have simple, classic style, and the company's commitment to employing artisans internationally while contributing to Charity:Water makes me happy to support them. Come out to shop and enjoy a cocktail with us!”

In addition to shopping, there will be cocktails, light bites and a chance to win Cuyana products. RSVP to
