About Nina

Bobbin lace was introduced long ago to the island of Puerto Rico. Here, we call it "mundillo" (roughly translated to "little world"). Some experts believe the art originated as far back as 1,300 or 1,400 years ago in either Egypt, Spain, or possibly Italy.

Throughout the ages, women have been the chief custodians of mundillo. Nina is the name of the brand and workshop, created by emergent Puertorrican artisan Mari Carmen, with the goal of ushering mundillo into the fashion of the 21st century.

Nina is the renewal of a centennial art form, and a celebration of sisterhood. Every single piece is uniquely crafted by hand, and aspires to be a nexus of history and future. Nina is elegance and culture. Nina is art that you can wear.
