CASAYOJA is based in New York's luscious Mid-Hudson Valley in Munsee/ Lenape ancestral land. It is a blessing to live and work surrounded by its abundance of water and beautiful landscapes.
We explore fashion design in its many facets, resulting in the making of handbags, footwear, accessories and garments. Our design sensibilities and aesthetics are influenced by our way of life, which is guided by a strong connection to the natural world. We strive to access sustainable methods in our work. Prioritizing our relationships with all beings and the environment is paramount to our practice.
We have an artisanal approach to our endeavor, handcrafting each piece with care and integrity. Our preference is to use premium re-purposed and surplus raw materials with the intent to minimize our carbon footprint. The result of these guiding principles leads to the production of limited edition, small-batch and one-of-a-kind goods.
Our products are designed and developed in the CASAYOJA studio and in collaboration with local and international master craftspeople. We are available to engage in custom-made projects upon request.
Your purchase supports our small collective of artisans who truly love working their craft.
