Hi! We are Natalia Colichon and Martin Johns, the creators of Mercadito Natural, a manifestation born upon our imagination, curiosity and fascination of the natural world. We share two big roles in life: business partners / husband and wife. Together we hope to bring a worthy shopping experience by selecting ethically sourced, home made, and well curated offerings, art and adornments. Our goal is to help remember the lost equilibrium/connection between man and Earth. We are great enthusiasts of Mother Earth and we feel called to protect and love her the same way she does. This is why we decided to open Mercadito Natural, a creation beyond consumerism, where commerce delivers a conscious, ethical, beautiful and intuitive way of living. Identification with mother nature is far more valuable than anything else.
A little bit about each other:
We met 5 years ago in Bali, Indonesia. Martin was living the Bali life and I was in my last year of University (SCAD). Our connection since has been so strong that we decided to become life partners. We got married this year (July 20th, 2018) and we are now looking forward to a sustainable way of living. Our family is a mix of Australia and Latin America.
Martin shares his passion for science, chemistry and geology with me. I share my curiosity for plants, my creative spirit, and my love for mother Moon.
We are both artists swimming in an ocean agitated by our Mother Moon.
We like to dream, imagine, love, and create.
We both share the curiosity of the unknown and the natural world.
