About the Designer:
Designer Stephany Sensi studied Fashion Design at Istituto Marangoni in Milan, and later earned her master’s degree in Brand Management in the same institution (2006). She then worked alongside Tomas Maier for his eponymous brand, based in Miami (2006-2010).
Our products are all manufactured in Ecuador with an artisanal concept yet current approach and design aesthetic for a fashion savvy clientele. Currently we are present in more than 15 countries.
We work in a close environment of social responsibility with the artisans and their craft, and our combined efforts create a fine creative end product. We are proud to be working with women artisans in the Andean region. We provide work and fair remuneration for the development of their communities.
All of our customers and brand supporters help the artisan community throughout the Andes region in Ecuador, providing work and a continuation of this millenary weaving craft. Our main goal in the elaboration of these products is to give creative work opportunities for the artisans, where they can show off their craft and abilities and at the same time we are helping maintain the millenary craft of weaving Toquilla Straw.
