The prestigious brand announced the opening of its second store in Puerto Vallarta, which showcases unique, one-of-a-kind handmade Mexican oilcloth and embroidery handbags and accessories, as well as trending jewelry, fashion, and home décor.

Erica Black, founder and designer of Erica Maree, is a Puerto Vallarta resident hailing from Portland, Oregon, who creates gorgeous boho-chic clothing and accessories inspired by the colors and traditions of Mexico. Black has traveled around Mexico, finding local craftspeople that create textiles by hand and embroider using techniques passed down from generation to generation. With a dedication to fair trade policies, Erica Maree brings a beachy modern feel to these traditional handcrafting methods.

The brand offers its customers the opportunity to add the magic of Mexican oilcloth and embroidery styles, such as Otomi by the women of the Tenango Valley, to their everyday lives. Besides working with Mexican artisans, Erica Maree also works with various local artists and designers in the community of Puerto Vallarta and Sayulita.

Erica Black enthusiastically commented that she is “over the moon about opening her second location on Basilio Badillo, a premier shopping street in Puerto Vallarta.” She and her team are so happy to have become a part of the Emiliano Zapata and “Old Town” shopping district with an offer to locals and residents alike of a new spot to find unique one of kind Mexico-inspired pieces.

While the new store is located on Basilio Badillo 314, Emiliano Zapata; the design studio is located on Hidalgo 167, El Centro.

“Since its beginnings and until today, the quality in photography and editorial design of Vallarta Lifestyles is unrivaled, because there’s nothing similar in this region of Mexico. Besides, to the foreign community that visit us, this magazine is essential if they want to know what’s new and what’s going on in our destination.”

“When I first opened my gallery in 1986, my relationship with Vallarta Lifestyles started for the need of people to know me and, because it is one of the very few quality publications in the destination, I decided to advertise in it. There are clients that still remember me for the magazine, with whom I have had several years of relationship.”

“We have been clients of Vallarta Lifestyles since 1999, the year in which we arrived to this destination. Back then, it was the only publication where you could really do local marketing. These days, in spite of the arrival of new technologies, we keep advertising, because it is a really important complement for our marketing strategy.”
