If you like quality, colorful accents and prints, you like MANDINGA.
MANDINGA is an Uruguayan brand that merges art and global trend in their designs, known for their uniquely designed prints. Established in 2011 by the two sisters Analia and Luciana.
The sisters always remain close to the family essence, inspired by their roots, culture and traditions of Montevideo, Uruguay, South America. They started as an up cycling brand and even since they decided to expand their collection with producing new clothes, reducing waste is still in their DNA. From left over stock they create capsule collections, tote-bags, facemasks or donate it to the University for their projects. Nothing is left unused.
There are many Uruguayan hands involved in the process and a few Chinese.
All items are handmade locally in Uruguay. The merino wool is even locally sourced. The other fabrics cotton, linen, tencel and viscose are imported. The prints are designed in Uruguay and printed in China.
The shoes and boots are also locally handmade by the local craftsmen. The election of leather and the comfort of them are the key. Not available for vegans at the moment.
