Sol is currently the founder of the brand PARDOHats, “which was born as an experimental project that later reached the business world, anchored in the value of the rebirth of sombrerería that builds concept, generates identity, and marks distance.”

Her solution? “I always look for colorful elements to bring more light and joy.”
