It's finally here! Our Limited Edition Yana Manta Jacket is in stock!
The fabric is designed by Yana Manta (Kinoo Arcentales Cajas) and made in collaboration with other Kichwa families in our home territory, who produce the textile.
In this way, this jacket embodies slow fashion, and indigenous sovereignty through production. The entirety of the making of this jacket (right down to the fabric!) is 100% indigenous owned and operated. The leather finishes and interior fabric detailing give it a lux feel.
The design presents a strong and bold statement. It is traditional geometry that tells the story of a landscape of mountains and rivers; a balance of earth and water. These waterways craft pathways that every person must follow in the journey of self discovery.
The black and white indicates duality, which is key in Andean cosmology. They are opposites that work together: North and South, Left and Right, Positive and Negative, Up and Down.
This jacket can proudly be worn by all.
Designer Yana Manta (Kinoo Arcentales Cajas) takes inspiration from his kichwa roots, as well as his lifelong journey of navigating two worlds that have always felt like home: that of southern and northern indigenous communities, which are both distinct, yet sometimes carry similar teachings.
Designed in Canada.
