About Kathya and Cinthya

A few years ago, Cinthya met an old man selling these beautiful lamps at the hotel where she worked. The lamps caught Cinthya's eye and she learned to make them herself by asking him questions and doing her own research. Little by little, the two sisters raised money to buy the tools and make the lamps on their own. Once the first few lamps were built, they learned how to paint. When people saw the finished products, they were really impressed. As people began to recognize their work, Kathya and Cinthya realized that they want to establish their own business. Many people in town buy the lamps as gifts for baby showers, birthdays, yoga centers, Christmas, and personalized pieces.
