Heritage by Hand presents a collection of kaftans, jackets, scarves and homewear by Argentinian designer Micaela Suide.
Inspired by the dramatic landscape of Patagonia, Micaela´s focus is on handmade pieces painted through the gouache technique with the aim of emulating colours, shapes and textures from nature. “Landscapes have always been the starting point for my work. I always resort to mental landscapes that stayed with me like stamps. From there I translate them into color palettes…. The basis of AGAVE is to work with each fabric as if it were a work of art; to dedicate the time each piece deserves.”
Heritage by Hand captures the spirit of the land in a carefully curated selection of handmade home and fashion products. As described by its founder Heidi Mckinnon, “Heritage by Hand is a lifestyle brand that promotes the importance of the handmade in our lives. My approach to the selection has evolved out of a deep respect for both culture and environment developed over decades of work as a curator and advocate in collaboration with traditional communities throughout Latin America. The shapes, colors, and textures of the natural world are the foundation of everything we stand for. I believe that pieces crafted by hand of organic materials for our bodies or our homes can enhance our wellbeing. HBH aims to elevate the work we represent with a singular respect for the cultures and people that make it and the life they breathe into it. HBH favors long term relationships with partner artisans so that impact can be sustained and they can maintain their at-risk, deep-rooted cultural heritage.”
