Founder & Designer Erica Maree

Her Story

In 2009, Erica Maree burst onto the bohemian clothing accessories and clothing market with handmade items. Complete and full of texture and vibrant color. Quickly becoming must-have throughout the Bay of Banderas, which includes famed Puerto Vallarta, Punta Mita and Sayulita.

The Bohemian clothing and accessories founder and designer, Erica Black, fell in love with Mexico after moving from Portland, Oregon.  The creative seeds were planted in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.

Here is where Erica walked the mercados, town plazas and neighboring rural villages fascinated by indigenous textiles. These timeless fabrics would become the canvas in which she turned the everyday into the sublime. Traditional Mexican embroidered dresses become exquisite one-of-a-kind hobo bags. Also adding the feel of the bohemian clothing and accessories A hand-crafted Otomi table runner transforms into a gorgeous clutch. Colorful oil cloth fabric, typically used as table cloth, is fastened into wallets, IPad cases and cross-body purses. 

Erica Maree is a true testament to the rich Mexican culture – its traditions, its creativity and its resourcefulness.

Hecho a Mano - Made by Hand

For the L❤️VE of Mexico

Flowers hold an important place in Mexican culture and tradition, a common theme in Mexican folk art
and something that we love to feature in our handcrafted Mexican fashion and accessories at Erica
Maree. 

Three of the most iconic flowers in Mexican culture you will see in traditional Mexican craftwork include
Marigolds, Dahlias and Poinsettias, all which date back to Aztec and Mayan culture. But you don’t need
to be a deity to be adorned in in the power and sensuality of flowers, because Erica Maree takes this
ancient Mexican tradition and pairs it with looks you’ll love.
