Designer and Founder
I am a passionate and experienced Ethical Fashion Designer from Berlin, Germany and currently living part-time at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.
Searching for a greater purpose in life, I felt a calling to travel to Guatemala and connect with the Mayan culture through exploring their villages and getting to know the local weavers.
Creating fashion with a purpose is my mission – sharing my skills through teaching local women new sewing and pattern-making techniques, and supporting them with a fair living wage to create a better world for them and their families.
