Myriam Ceballos and Stephanie Helu decide to merge their energies, talents and interests in design, artisanal techniques, natural fibers, fabrics and metals to create a unique and inspiring concept. The two highly creative forces, both passionate about the surrounding landscapes of nature, the tranquility of the seaside and the vibrancy of the tropical jungle came together, as fate would have, to unify their experiences and vision.
Duo de Mar is thus born in 2015 on the turquoise beach and lush jungle of Tulum, México out of the creators’ necessity of expressing a lifestyle they truly believe in through a new way of dressing, of connecting and being.
The charming encounters with the sea, the serenity it emanates, women’s sensuality and the exclusive lifestyle of the Riviera Maya, are all a pivotal part of their inspiration for the brand.
A tribute to nature, passion for craftsmanship and artisanal production are all integral to the brand’s spirit. Inspired by strong women who wander from city life into unexpected places and paradises that evoke freedom. The inspiration, design, and handmade production, focuses on projecting life, history, culture and freedom, together with colors that reflect harmony and calm.
