Historically, the Caribbean coast has been known for the tropical glamour embodied by a few exclusive beaches. Whether it was Cuba in the 1930's, Saint Thomas in the 1960's or the Casa de Campo's beaches, these areas have been the center of attention for the world's elite. During the last decade, chic glamour has been reflected in a city known for its sophistication and unique atmosphere: Cartagena de Indias.
It was right here that Martin Pescador was born – a brand that personifies the fine balance between classic and contemporary that Cartagena has achieved.
MP hats, a signature lifestyle product of the brand, are carefully hand-woven for 15 days by our local artisans, in an age-old tradition that we take pride in preserving and sharing just as we do with the magical eco-diversity of our paradisiacal location. The natural fibers present in our shirts, shorts and most of our items reaffirm our commitment to creating a line that is truly inspired by the tropics.
Hats, pompoms, filigree and "chumbes" are artistic manifestations from different regions of Colombia. These pre-Hispanic processes, which have been practiced since 4000 BC, are now combined with the latest design techniques in order to achieve a perfect blend between classic and contemporary influences. As a result, not only do we have beautiful products but also a meaningful story.
