Our Story: Fashion & Art
What is artTECA?
artTECA is a women´s ready-to-wear apparel and accessory brand offering an exclusive collection of pieces that are printed with limited edition artwork by contemporary artists from around the globe. arTECA fuses art and fashion and brings women the opportunity to shop unique and exclusive designs, while also making an impact in art education with each purchase made.
Because each woman is unique, we believe in pieces that are just as unique and allow women to embrace their individuality and style. This is why we collaborate with celebrated artists to create limited edition prints that are exclusively found at artTECA.
Never Out of Style
Art is timeless, therefore so is artTECA. We have designed our garments and accessories to have a classic and modern aesthetic, so that each piece can be worn during every season and always be in style.
Elevate your Closet! Add Patterns & Prints
Captivating prints separate you from the crowd and express your personal style. Pair any of our pieces with your basics for an immediate style upgrade. Think of a pair of denim jeans, black leather jacket or plain white tee, all made more chic by adding an artTECA piece to the mix.
Did you know that the name artTECA combines the word art with the Ancient Latin term “teca” which means gallery. This defines the brand entirely and how it offers women the opportunity to create a closet that resembles a gallery-each piece beautifully created and telling a unique story.
artTECA is meant for you if…
you find joy in surrounding yourself with art and color.
you want your style to stand out from the crowd.
you want to look and feel great, whether you’re at work or having fun.
How We Got Here
With a unique heritage from both Latin America and Europe, we were exposed to international art and culture at an early age. Art museums, art galleries and the theater played an important role in our lives growing up, carrying an influence into our career choices in arts management and fundraising.
As two busy women with careers, we immediately saw a vacancy for clothing and accessories that were comfortable, sophisticated and unique that we could wear to a business meeting then off to a lunch date. We were tired of seeing the same dull and stuffy styles over and over again.
So in 2015, artTECA was born. We decided to bring together our passion and expertise in fashion and art and create a brand that was like nothing ever before. Today, artTECA boosts a beautifully curated collection of limited edition pieces, each made of luxurious fabrics and printed with exclusive contemporary art.
