PARTNERS

In 1997, Clara de la Torre began a project that would allow her to share her vision and spiritual search with other artisans and designers. His motivation was to return to nature, learn from a culture that was strongly integrated with it, and start a creative path aligned with that philosophy. He chose a community descended from the Andean culture, Aymaras, Qechuas and began his research and textile work with them. She and her associates, Diana Dai Chee Chaug and Verónica Olavide, have since shared their journey of design, work with the land and the indigenous communities of the region, through their firm MANTO.

The concept of MANTO is based on an inherent respect for seasonal cycles and the natural elements of the environment. The firm creates cloaks that communicate the ancestral value of handmade textiles, framed in contemporary design, which at times complements and at times contrasts with tradition. Each of his designs reflects the world that surrounds him, the care of our land, and the memory of our origin.

Manto works in Buenos Aires, with the community of San Isidro (Salta) and other small communities in the Northwest of Argentina. His team works sensibly in conjunction with several families of weavers, attuned to their needs and cultural values, to sustainably produce a line of luxury products. It is through this commitment to tradition, communities and nature that the firm has innovated and continues to innovate.
