Patterns & Tassels
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:
