Kuketa is the childhood nickname for designer Maria Cicarelli. Graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, she has been designing since the age of five when her aunt gave her a needle and thread to keep her busy while she sewed garments for her clientele in Buenos Aires. Since then, her love of textiles, art, and nature has continued to inspire the creative style and flair of these one-of-a-kind pieces.

The collections focus on particular design elements, reflecting the texture and qualities of the season, with an underlying theme of "design in nature". The images are original and individually silk-screened onto linen, cotton, suede or silk. Some feature vintage fabrics which are hand picked from antique markets.
