Our Story

Kiara Villatoro

Born in The Bronx to Dominican parents, Kiara now resides and creates in Yonkers, NY of Westchester County. She studied fashion design at The Fashion Institute Of Technology in NYC and acquired a BFA. After many years of working in a fast-paced NYC as an associate designer and production coordinator, Kiara took a step back from her career to delicate herself to her family. Since then she continues to grow her small business while taking care of her little one at home. During her career she acquired many skills along with gaining much inspiration through her love of nature and all its beauty. Kiara is full of ideas and is excited to continue to create the products and items that you love!

Caritas was launched in 2016 as a natural goods shop where Kiara handcrafted natural soaps, salves, and oils. She would sell online and at local markets with tons of support from locals in NY. Today she is continuing to bring you natural wholesome skincare items made with locally sourced ingredients. As well as a new endeavor of flower preservation art where she creates jewelry and preserves floral keepsakes.

We are so blessed and thankful for all the love and support our community has shown us all these years. Thank you for supporting a small latina woman owned business!

Caritas in Latin means "love". The shop was named after a special saying from St.John Paul II "Deus caritas est", meaning "God is love." Kiara is a practicing Roman Catholic who loves her faith and it is her foundation in life.
