cuatro x confettees is a brand built on Texas sized dreams, rooted in faith and family with deep love and respect for visionaries, artisans, and creatives across the globe.
Founded in the summer of 2019 by Texas native, Meredith Greer Tichenor, the Confettees brand started as a way to showcase custom designed tees, curated home decor, colorful gifts and eventually clothing and accessories.
A pop up event a few years prior blossomed into an unplanned partnership with our dear friends Paulina & Carolina, founders of Maria Victoria. Through that, we've been able to bring you our own line of Confettees by Maria Victoria bags handmade for you by dedicated artisans in Mexico.
The impact on small businesses on the heels of a global pandemic left Meredith feeling dissatisfied by where the brand had landed. After prayerfully considering where to take Confettees and a little soul searching about what this brand is meant to be about,
a new vision was formed. Bolstered with the success of the Confettees by Maria Victoria partnership- Meredith looked outside of Texas for the perfect compliment to the roots of the brand.
As only God can do, a door was opened to a partnership with a precious Ecuadorian family who has been hand weaving the most luxurious toquilla straw hats for decades. Every part of the process is done by their hardworking hands- a process that can take weeks, months or even up to a year depending on the intricacies of a design. Our Cuatro hats have been thoughtfully designed and handwoven just for our customers with attention to detail, color and exclusivity.
BUT WAIT! There's just one more special touch.
Long before the quilt trend hit the scene, came my love for these colorful, handmade creations because of my Mamma. My Dad's mom was a born and raised East Texas girl. Quiet, simple, Godly, wise and the best Cherry Pie baker and Uno player in the land. She's the one that taught me how to sew- and oh, how I could have used her skills in creating Cuatro. I was just 28 years old when my last living grandparent passed away and I WISH THEY WERE HERE to lean on, learn from, love on and enjoy.
With that, the quilted hat bands you'll find on your Cuatro hat all come from someone's hardworking hands. They are crafted in the United States of America with love and intention.This nod to my Mamma and my roots, combined with the exquisite, Ecuadorian craftsmanship of the straw hats is what sets a Cuatro x Confettees hat apart from the rest. We've yet to see a pairing like ours and we are thrilled to bring these handmade pieces to you. So much love is poured into the making of each and every one... and just like you are uniquely YOU, no two hats or bands will ever be exactly alike. We love that about the cuatro hats. They are perfectly imperfect and especially special.
We want you to feel that way when you wear a Cuatro x Confettees hat, especially special. It is our joy to get to create for our customers and we are grateful every time we pack an order for you. You are a blessing to our families here in Texas, and many more in Mexico and Ecuador. Shopping small with Cuatro x Confettees makes a difference and we thank you for choosing us.
