We believe that the fashion industry needs a change and that it can be transformed into a platform of well-being for all. We believe in conscious consumption, sustainable production processes and timeless and long-lasting designs.

We work to transform the paradigm of the fashion industry, bringing together and strengthening all actors in fair and sustainable practices.

Our vision of sustainable fashion goes beyond the animaná brand, and for that reason we also carry out the NGO Made by Us (HxN), which has obtained the Consultative Status of the United Nations.

We work with natural fiber producers, cooperatives, social enterprises and artisans from vulnerable communities to preserve their artistic traditions and improve their quality of life. We also work with fashion leaders to provide recommendations and best practice guides. You can find more information about our projects in our Blog .

animaná unites ancient weaving techniques with contemporary designs using natural fibers, to create sustainable luxury products. 

Letter from the founder

My name is Adriana Marina, founder of animaná. I was born in Puerto Santa Cruz, in Argentine Patagonia. I was raised in a beautiful place among sheep, guanacos, horses and the sounds of nature in its purest forms. Tending to make a contribution to the vision of local development and globalization, I understand that the complex universe of fashion and design has a marked impact on sociological and economic aspects and defines behavior in society. We still need to understand and experience the very important role that fashion represents in society. However, this industry shows two very different sides: glamor and beauty are contrasted with slavery and pollution. If we go back in history we can see that the origins of fashion come from manual production techniques with natural fibers. The design reflected culture and society. These are images of a lost world that we need to recover.

The main actors in these images are the artisans. They are masters of art who carry in their hands the wisdom, ancestral secrets and messages that each piece they create transmits. I firmly believe that the time has come when, as consumers, we must start listening.

animaná is the invisible connection between the secrets of Patagonia and the Andes, places that contain vitality, power, nature, mystery and the cosmopolitan cities of the world. Our goal is to introduce an alternative to the production and consumption process of the fashion industry. The world needs to respect the natural processes of materials and human resources. animaná represents this union between thousands of hands working together to build a new model for a sustainable future.


Our team

The artisans

We work with natural fiber producers and artisans from Patagonia to the Andes. Masters of art who, in possession of wisdom, transmitted secrets, skills, customs, habits and social behaviors from generation to generation. The artisans of Patagonia and the Andes are among the best in the world. animaná seeks to be the invisible connection between the secrets of Patagonia and the Andes with the cosmopolitan cities of the world. Our main objective is to give voice to culture and the only way to do this is by building a bridge between it and you, the consumer.

Adriana Marina

ADRIANA MARINA is the founder of animaná. He was born in Patagonia, near the southernmost point of the world. It is committed to sustainable production, the economic development of local communities, relationships with artisans from Patagonia and the Andes, and sustainability education in fashion through the NGO Hecho x Nuestros and the Latin American Ethical Fashion Forum. After obtaining her PhD in Economics, Adriana focused on the problems of local development, inequality and poverty, especially on applying theory to practice in her region of origin. He launched animaná as a social enterprise focused on reviving the Andean and Patagonian culture that he loves so much.
