Fewer, better. Every day.

Our mission is to provide a fewer, better wardrobe: a smart system of pieces that is so easy to style, it gives you more time to focus on what you love.

Founders - Karla Gallardo and Shilpa Shah

Our Story

Founded by two women ten years ago, Cuyana creates timeless essentials for the modern wardrobe. Our fewer, better ethos drives everything we do, from the design process to the finished product.

We partner with craftsmen and artisans around the world to ensure the best-possible outcome: year-round necessities and seasonal staples that are made with integrity and promise longevity.

Our Heritage

Heritage craftsmanship is at the heart of each piece we create—our relationships with our suppliers, factories, and mills are part of our extended Cuyana family. 

We have traveled the world—from Ecuador to Peru to Italy—to forge relationships with creators and makers. Each of our products reflects a genuine partnership between the Cuyana team and the individuals who bring our products to life.

Our Values

Timeless design ensures each piece in our collection will serve purpose in your wardrobe for years to come.

Quality materials allow our products to last longer, maintain shape, and wear beautifully.


Responsible and sustainable production is at the core of what we do. By the end of this year, 100% of our products will be made from sustainably-made materials, which are often recycled or reused.

Our Sustainability Approach

The Fewer, Better Wardrobe

Our collection is made of pieces that fit together seamlessly to create a smarter, better wardrobe. A careful curation organized into two categories, core and limited edition, each piece serves a purpose in your rotation. Mix and match our assortment to achieve elegant, versatile looks in your day-to-day life.


Quality, intuitive staples that lay the foundation for year-round ensembles

Limited Edition

Made with the intention of delivering fresh newness to your collection 


Our sustainability practices go beyond responsible production. As you add to your collection, create space and extend product life cycles through our care, donation, and resell services.

Giving Back

We partner with H.E.A.R.T., a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping female victims of abuse, by donating apparel and accessories to their mission. Together with thredUP, we are able to collect and give preloved Cuyana pieces to individuals in need. Print a complementary Cuyana x thredUP shipping label and use it to pare down your closet to fewer, better pieces and help benefit women through H.E.A.R.T.
