Animaná creates sustainable and natural knitwear. They work with communities of organised and empowered Andean villagers who use the traditional techniques they inherited from both their cultural legacies and their elders. Animaná means "a place in paradise" in the kakàn language (ethnics of northern Argentina), now extinct. It is a return to the sources where we listen to nature and its wisdom, we respect people, animals, nature and ancestral traditions. Supported and guided by professional teams in the areas of design, production, management and quality control, the artisans achieve an excellent handloom and thread quality. International designers are invited to assist in recovering the integrity of the ancestral techniques, while also keeping contemporary design aesthetics in mind.
