For as long as I can remember I have been painting boho inspired canvases, re-purposing my clothing, and monogramming or bedazzling anything I could find. From the tape dispensers I used while working at Pucci to Louboutins for my wedding, I personalized it all.
When the opportunity (and push from my family) to create an e-commerce site of my own presented itself, I jumped in and started MariellaVilar.com. Painting is my thing and standing behind a product that I love is what I do. This website and business is run by me, myself and I.
The heart of this site is the Personalized Basket. Being born and raised in South Florida and vacationing in the Caribbean, the "French Basket" is not a rare bag to have or see. They literally are everywhere these days. Shortly after free-lancing I realized there was a greater demand in the states for this IT bag, it's potential and usefulness. I knew I could use my love for painting to bring some fun, classic and great priced items to the grand e-commerce and wedding worlds. The basket can be used as a market bag, beach bag, chic carry-all and so on! When it became a staple diaper bag in my rotation I realized I needed better options to store the things IN the bag! Cue the clutches, cases, pouches etc . I believe in affordable gift options for all price points and strive to keep my prices competitive and accessible. I am constantly scouting new brands and items that are chic yet useful that I can throw some paint onto.
