The Carolina Lifestyle story


Our Founder and Creative Director, Carolina Giraldo, is many things – a successful business leader, a proud Colombian Australian, and a mother. She recognised a need to create a beautiful, comfortable, and versatile range of clothes and accessories to inspire confidence and bring ease to the lives of busy women.

In 2011 she began the Carolina Lifestyle brand with a few leather bags and belts. Today, thanks to her passion for great design, quality, and craftsmanship, Carolina Lifestyle has stores in four states and a recognisable online presence. Carolina is supported by a dedicated team of designers, artisans, and stylists. Although we have grown since our humble beginnings in 2011, we will never outgrow the care and pride we provide.


Today Carolina has a large range of clothing and knitwear, leather accessories, shoes, homewares, hats, and giftware. Our distinct point of difference is that 90% of our manufacturing is made by hand in Colombia - South America.


Here we have a large team of talented artisans who translate all of our designs into beautifully handmade products, using only the best textures and natural materials for our very special customers.

We believe that when we make products with love, they are full of meaning to all.

We track the craftsman of all our pieces. From the person who cuts the leather, sews the clothing, and packages the product.


Here at Carolina Lifestyle, our durable and soft leather is handcrafted from the finest Colombian cowhide by craftsmen in our own factory, some of whom have been working with leather for over 25 years.

The craftsmanship is of the highest quality. We only use leather that is a by-product of meat farming in Colombia, South America.


We want to fill lives with beautiful designs. We want to leave behind a positive and memorable experiences for our customers through beautiful pieces. We design our pieces to fit and flatter all body shapes from a size 6-22.

Our products easily move from day to night, corporate to leisure and are tailored specially for the natural curves of women.

We focus on natural, luxurious, and feel good fabrics such as silk, linen, tencel, cotton, alpaca, cashmere and viscose. Designed with our customer in mind, the pieces are easy to mix and match. They are not only stylish but they are comfortable and versatile too. 


Here at Carolina we value quality. Each piece is handmade with skill and love, whether it be our clutches, shoes or clothing.

Their invaluable skill and work has resulted in the beautiful brand that is Carolina Lifestyle.
