Carla Valencia Design consists of Carla Valencia + her father Carlos Valencia. Together, they complete each piece by hand and machine. Carla’s paternal grandmother Martha taught her how to sew and Carlos, that aforementioned grandmother’s son, grew up watching his mother handmake all her clothing and his sisters. His father, along with his uncles, owned a denim factory in Guadalajara, Mexico where Carlos learned how to operate not only the sewing machines but learned about fabrics garment making.
Carlos uses his skills with machinery to create our original patches as well as our machine made embroidery pieces. Carla designs and hand makes our custom orders. Together father + daughter honor the old world techniques of embroidery using needle and thread handed down by Martha.
