Caravana's fusion of culture and fashion

Who’s this? Caravana

What’s it all about? Colourful, ethically crafted accessories and lifestyle products with a distinctively bohemian flavour. Caravana brings together beautiful leathers and vintage textiles sourced from around the world to create scarves, quilts, hats, bags, wallets and even cushion covers.

Anything else we should know? The label uses only small scale family and artisan makers to keep the collections authentic and high quality—not to mention to support local communities in countries like Indonesia, India and Nepal, where Caravana is made.

So how did it all come to be? Jackie Jennings is one of those kinds of women who seem to be able to do pretty much anything—entrepreneur, photographer, designer. She’s a creator and a bit of a bowerbird, revelling in travelling the villages of India and meeting the artisans of Indonesia to handpick the finest fabrics and craftspeople to make Caravana the glorious fusion of cultures that it has become.
