Centinelle is a California based, BIPOC, woman owned slow fashion brand that creates beautiful fun and timeless hand- drawn illustrations on scarves, homeware, loungewear and hair accessories. My brand was born as a playful experiment to take the foulard from fussy to fun. I began illustrating by hand colorful and whimsical designs, influenced by my Mexican heritage (I am born and raised in Mexico City), my home Northern California, my obsession with Japan, my love for animals and all those little simple pleasures of life.
I consider myself a hybrid between a city girl and a nature lover. My love for animals and nature reflects in my designs. "I , Cristina Guizar, Mexican-American fashion designer and founder started this brand with the dream of bringing versatility and fashion into colorful accessories that bring fun and empower women's style and confidence.
