About Me

Hey there! I'm Cara from CaraCo. 

What's in a name you might ask. Cara (pronounced "Care-Uh" as in 'I care a lot') is my mom's brilliant rendition of her own mother's name which clocks in at a whopping 11 letters long. My mom shortened Charalambía to the Greek word for joy Chará, cleverly anglicized for easier American consumption finally brings us to my name Cara.

I launched CaraCo during the COVID-19 pandemic as a 5-9 passion project that combines my love to create with my marketing mind cultivated during my time at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business and my 5 year (and counting) career as a product manager in the data analytics field.

My mission with CaraCo is to remind people to celebrate the little joys of every day. With each of my collections I hope to bring you and your loved ones a moment of joy each time you catch a glimpse of your CaraCo little joy on your body or around your home.

xoxo,
