With the holidays right around the corner, it’s a great time to do some Christmas shopping for unique gifts while on vacation in Puerto Vallarta. At Resorts by Pinnacle, the prime location of our luxury accommodations in the Romantic Zone means that we are surrounded by great stores, restaurants, beach clubs and more, all within walking distance.
One of our favorite local designers, Erica Maree, has just opened a new boutique featuring a bohemian chic line of handbags, clothing, accessories and more. Founder and designer, Erica Black, fell in love with Mexico after moving from Portland, Oregon. Inspired by the markets, town plazas and rural villages life in Mexico, Erica became fascinated by indigenous textiles.
These timeless fabrics would become the canvas for creating her stylish and unique line. Traditional Mexican embroidered dresses become exquisite one-of-a-kind hobo bags. 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.
Visit the Erica Maree store now located on Hidalgo 167, Centro, Puerto Vallarta. Store hours are Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm. Or visit http://ericamaree.com/ to learn more.
