CasaQ's line of exquisite glass ornaments is a great example of our commitment to bringing in cross-cultural products that reflect the needs of our consumers.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 22, 2010
CasaQ, a San Jose-based Hispanic lifestyle company, will debut its exclusive Latin-themed fine glass ornament collection at select Macy's Department Stores this Holiday season.
The product line features Our Lady of Guadalupe, Frida Kahlo, La Catrina, Aztec Calendar and other Latin-inspired designs priced from $19 to $30. Each Christmas ornament comes in an individual gift box with a legend card that explains the history or symbolism behind the design.
"We are always on the look-out for fresh, interesting products from diverse vendors that sets us apart from our competition," says Shawn Outler, GVP, Multicultural Merchandising and Vendor Development. "CasaQ's line of exquisite glass ornaments is a great example of our commitment to bringing in cross-cultural products that reflect the needs of our consumers."
In 2007 when event planner, Darlene Tenes was unable to find culturally significant Christmas decor and gifts, she designed two hand-painted glass ornaments that reflected her Latino roots. They sparked an immediate interest from the Latin GRAMMY® Award producers who called and asked for them to be featured in their official celebrity gift baskets. They had only seen pictures of the designs online, which were not yet available in stores. The ornaments were finished, fedexed and made it into the hands of celebrities just in time for the show.
Since then CasaQ Ornaments have received much press because of their intricate and beautiful designs which have been given as gifts at numerous celebrity driven events such as Alma Awards, People en Español's Christmas Party, CBS' A Home for the Holidays TV Special and American Music Awards Gift Suite.
"I'm excited to be debuting the CasaQ product line at Macy's one of the strongest names in the retail industry,” says CasaQ founder, Darlene Tenes, “I appreciate the opportunity they have provided to help me share my passion for my Latino culture with others.”
