ABOUT THE MAKER 

Based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Textile artist Paula Dipierro and industrial designer Gabriela Horvat combined their backgrounds and expertise to create their own interpretation of contemporary jewelry. This mother and daughter duo carefully source noble and local materials such as silk, wool, alpaca wool, chaguar fibers from South America’s Wichi tribes, semiprecious stones, metals, woods, and Argentinian leather to create one-of-a-kind  pieces with the essence of the primitive and the ancestral. 



When working with noble fibers and ancestral processes quantities are limited and sometimes impossible to replicate in a consistent base. This approach , not only helps the environment but also opens up a dialogue to keep traditions, techniques, and cultures alive. Something that was getting lost in a global economy of mass production and heavy consumption. We are very proud to have our collection made in limited quantities and in family run labs. We understand that our process is not fast and our collection is mainly seasonless but we are proud to have a circular and constant economy that makes a difference in every family that is involved in the process.
