It all started with "cadenitas and casitas"...

Brenda Campillo is the creative designer and maker at Pink Clouds.  With a size 2 hook and cotton yarn she learned crochet basics from her mother; it all started with  "cadenitas and casitas". She later learned sewing basics from her Tia; first with a needle and thread and later with a vintage Singer.  Her love of creating with her hands led her to advance her skills in crochet, sewing and further to working with leather.

Inspired by nature, travel and the beauty of every day life, Brenda designs and handcrafts all products at Pink Clouds.  Each treasure  is created with attention to detail  one stitch at a time resulting in very unique and intricate pieces.   She uses fine thread imported from France as well as cotton yarn which is cultivated and grown in the USA.  She works with genuine American leather and leather imported from France, Italy and Spain to make her brooches, purse charms and bracelets.  

Whenever possible and available she works with leather from discarded garments which she purchases at local thrift shops and yarn made from recycled t-shirt and jersey in an effort to  keep unwanted garments out of domestic and international landfills.  

All material at Pink Clouds is sourced from companies with  eco-conscious, fair labor and sustainable practices.  

Brenda's mission is to hand craft pretty little treasures made with sustainable and eco-consciously produced materials and to inspire others to buy locally handmade products they can feel proud of.
