OUR STORY

 

The Haydee Callejas brand is a Nicaraguan luxury accessories company. Designing collections from precious skins and genuine leather, these distinctive and rare pieces are a true passion and art by designer Haydee Callejas.

Inspiration comes from a special and fateful mix of two worlds: the old and the rising. Having pursued her studies in Italy, Haydee is greatly loyal to classics, artisan traditions, and timeless beauty. Rooted in the primitively wondrous and newly discovered Nicaragua, she is endlessly devoted to nature, the wild, and its tropical rhythms. This fusion of culture and chaos are apparent in each one of her designs.

Each collection embodies the women who they are designed for with a rich mix of vibrant colors, exotic nature, and bold sophistication. A daring petite woman herself, Haydee is of a fiery nature and is relentless in her pursuit for bringing her visions to life.

 

HAYDEE CALLEJAS, DESIGNER

In 2000, Haydee began working with local craftsmen in Nicaragua. The products being made in precious skins were extraordinary, but Nicaragua was still very much newcomer to the world of handmade accessories. Haydee quickly identified an opportunity to elevate these items to an international standard sensing that Nicaragua would eventually have the exposure that it does today.

In 2009, Haydee opened a boutique where she exhibited collaborations with local artists. As many had expected, the country and its industries were changing allowing new opportunities for tourism and products. It was important to Haydee to not only meet standards but also showcase the quality work that had evolved over the years.

With over 15 years experience working with fine materials, Haydee brought together a special team of creatives to re-launch her brand. In September of 2015, the Haydee Callejas atelier and showroom were opened in Managua, Nicaragua. Her brand is currently represented at selected boutiques in the US and Central America. Haydee's dedication to quality of Nicaraguan crafts continues to be the primary driving force behind the brand.
