The collection works on the idea of the land both literally and metaphorically. It brings up those sensations that come to us when traveling upcountry to the heart of Tierra del Fuego, the most southern place in Latin America. We can recall a shelter made out of a tarp over some trees, or filling a drawer with the items needed to survive in the wild, all of which is strapped with a string and covered with a cloth. It also reminds us of tying a knot in a rope to fasten a mug and throwing it into the river to collect some water. Or spending a day in the wild and surviving the crude Patagonian winter.
The garments in this collection are made out of discarded raw material donated by fishermen, hunters and adventurers from the area. Its mold design is inspired by up-cycling methods to create genderless and size less clothes out of the entire roll of cloth, with no waste at all. Lastly, tailoring and outdoor style blend into this classical but unique collection of clothing from the Tierra del Fuego region.
