ABOUT THE MAKER 
Sustainable Design. Fibra is a creative initiative that seeks to promote Argentine Family Farming businesses through the incorporation of contemporary design and production while conserving ancestral knowledge of each region in the country.


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.
