This article focuses on the success achieved by young Mexicans, Cristina Pineda and Ricardo Covalin, in their business Pineda-Covalin, based in La Roma neighborhood of Mexico City. The two met as undergraduates fulfilling a social service requirement in Merida, Yucatan. Their elegant silk scarves, ties, handbags, and shoes reinterpret traditional Mexican themes for an upscale contemporary market. Today, a hundred-odd designs draw inspiration from ethnic crafts, modern painters, pre-Hispanic treasures, colonial art, native culinary ingredients, and exotic landscapes. Clean, precise printing on quality silk fabrics and rich, sophisticated colorings are hallmarks of their work.
