Nice to meet you! Welcome to Addora - A place where colorful paintings turn into artsy wearable prints.
But what’s in a name? Addora was inspired by my grandmother's name, my mom's fashion sense, and our mutual love for fashionable prints. Growing up I recall carrying my mom's stylish "costurero" (or sewing box) because it looked like a handbag, and a bright pink one nonetheless! In it she would keep crochet needles, crochet weavings, and patches of patterned fabric that sooner or later will turn into a dress for her, for me or for my favorite doll.
Our shared love for pattern and design has stayed with me throughout my life. I grew up and studied graphic design and in order to support my family, I taught languages and art for many years but always longed to create my own designs combining painting & textile design. Eventually, I chose to follow my dream. This is how Addora was born.
Every art piece you see is hand-painted in my studio, later digitized to create the surface designs you see. My color and design inspiration comes from my cross-cultural family roots, infusing the tropical flair from the island of Puerto Rico, the place where I grew up.

I'm sure you will adore Addora designs!
