We met Kate, the owner and founder of La Viajera, last year and had an instant connection! When she asked us to make macarons for one of her pop-up shops, we knew exactly what we wanted to do! La Viajera is a line of unique handbags ethically sourced from Columbia (with leather details applied here in Dallas). The bold colors, patterns and designs that make the mochila bags stand out, were a natural place to start for our macaron inspiration. We also wanted to incorporate the leather "tassel" detail that Kate adds to her handbags (which gives them an undeniably updated, modern flair). SO we got creative with fondant and created these tassel pieces to attach to some of the macarons! 

Here's a taste of what La Viajera bags look like:

We the Birds

Sisters, Sarah + Natalie Knowlton, are the founders of WE THE BIRDS — a lifestyle brand and luxury French macaron bakery. We grew up all over the world, moving over 17 times and living in many countries including: Singapore, Australia, Venezuela, Cambodia, Thailand, France and of course, the US of A.  Our personal style and global perspective is a reflection of our transient upbringing. 

Now based in Dallas, TX, we established WE THE BIRDS through a shared love of fashion, design, travel and French macarons. What started as a creative outlet for two sisters, has blossomed into a multi-faceted business. Sarah’s professional background (with industry experience in fashion, design, & photography) combined with Natalie’s culinary prowess and professional business experience sets us apart from our competitors and makes us a uniquely dynamic duo.
