Mantara, founded by Carolina Pavetto, is a project that centers on the pillars of fair trade and circular design. With each and every thread, Mantara’s pieces give new value to the ancestral techniques practiced by the artisans of Santiago del Estero, Argentina. The studio believes in the creative force of design, in both the fabric they build together with local artisans and the designs that they develop and share throughout the world.
Mantara is dedicated to material honesty and maintaining the integrity of the natural fabrics. Their raw material is harvested with deep respect for the environment and they do not use dyes or subject their wool to any chemical processes.
