Caralarga is a Mexican brand for handcrafted jewelry founded by Ana Holschneider. The two artisans María del Socorro Gasca Chalqueño and Inés Hernandez Estrada lead the design process which aims at preserving the essence and highlighting the benefits of natural materials such raw cotton by transforming it in high quality handmade jewelry and interior design objects. 
 
The workshop of Caralarga is based in the historic building of the "Hércules" yarn and textile factory in Querétaro, Mexico. The factory from 1846, which still occupies parts of the complex, provides for the raw cotton fibers which Caralarga turns into handmade jewelry. Every month begins with a visit to Hércules where Francisco, who has been working there for more than 20 years, helps the team choose the right threads based on their thickness and quality. The threads are subsequently taken be gummed to acquire its texture. When this process is finished, the thread is stored on a giant steel reel. This way it prevents from tangling. Later, the thread is cut and rolled into a big "Oaxaca cheese" type of ball to make it easier to bring into the workshop and start with the creative design process. 

In its line production, Caralarga employs 12 women from the Hércules neighbourhood around the workshop in Querétaro. Caralarga pays a sustainable income and supports its employees in further developing their skills in producing its unique design pieces.
