Manto Abrigos from Argentina. A special international appearance! Manto was born in a magical and organic way in small villages in the northwest of Argentina. Moved by the way in which the Andean people treasure their art by keeping to their identity, Manto Abrigos is a way to connect with them. To generate a fruitful social, cultural, artistic and professional relationship between the Andean weavers and those of us living in cities.
In Quechua Manto means from the sky, from above.
Manto is protection, a hug and shelter.
The textile is in charged, it has a soul,
It travels its own journey and has a story.
It was born out of my deepest need to connect with nature and a culture that was still strongly integrated to it.
