Selva Negra was founded in 2016 in a tiny Brooklyn apartment in Crown Heights. The collection represents drive, holistic energy, united empowerment, careful craftsmanship, and engineered comfort. Designers, Kristen Gonzalez and Sam Romero found an immediate connection after meeting in New York post-graduation from FIT (KG) and Parsons (SR). They unite their Annie Hall tomboy style and bold feminine identity to embody a collection that aims to support women and their individuality. Influenced by their Latina heritage, they support their collection with intentionality and strength to combine a collective of honest and mindful products made in Los Angeles, California.
