Catalina Gonzalez (Founder and designer of Dondolo) and Sue Sartor (Founder and designer of SUE SARTOR) first crossed paths when they were honored as 2021 Southern Living New Southern Tastemakers, a group of female entrepreneurs who are shaping the south. While celebrating this wonderful honor in Charleston last year, they discovered their shared sensibilities, mission, and passion for beautifully handcrafted designs. It was a natural fit to join creative forces through a collection of women's, children's, and entertaining pieces. Both designers are thrilled to donate 10 percent of profits from the collection to "Dondolo Gives" - an organization that empowers women and children in Catalina's native country, Colombia.
The limited-edition collection brings to life two prints; first, a floral which exemplifies the joy of both brands, a pink Peony Print - created by Colombian artist Barbara Wiesner, and next, a delicately hand-drawn Hamptons Toile - illustrated by artist Ashley Begley, in styles for the entire family. The collection features exclusive silhouettes that combine Sue Sartor's best-in-class kaftan dresses with signature pipe and contrast prints with Dondolo's signature hand-smocking intricate details.
We hope you delight in all the collection has to offer, and the impact it makes across the world.
