Adorning women since 2013, CANELA-CANELA specializes in statement accessories that are one of a kind or limited edition pieces.  Every collection is designed and assembled locally by Gabriela and Adriana in their Mequon studio.  They are a team of Peruvian twins who collaborate on all of their designs.  Gabriela and Adriana are passionate about what they do, and love sharing their pieces as a way to celebrate and empower femininity.  Their collections have been sold in different places around the world.  From Mexico City, the city that watched them grow, to Monterrey, Chicago, Colorado, and Wisconsin, their beloved home.  All the support, faith, and enthusiasm from their friends, family, loving vendors, and stockists have been their fuel for their amazing five year journey.

This year they joined the Milwaukee Fashion Initiative as a chance to support a community that supports their local businesses.  Gabriela and Adriana believe in the importance to empower women, and believe “La union es la fuerza,” union is strength.  The sisters are grateful for their past, excited for the present, and hopeful for their future.
