I met Lorena Gallardo and her little daughter at an artist residency in Chuburna Puerto. We sat down and sketched out a variation of a classic linen guayabera and within two weeks, with one simple change, we had a sample.
Her company, Nook Nuuk, employs a family of local seamstresses. Every piece is made to order and entirely fair trade. Hand sewn from 100% Italian linen, material and production are split equally. A series of garments all named after birds are in the works.
