About us

We were born from stories.

Manuela travels the world, in a permanent hunt for textures, colours and unforgettable moments. Each and every one of our products are bred from these experiences, and its stories are bundled up with them in their tags. To this date, our collections have been based in colonial Africa, the Russia from Anna Karenina, Elizabeth Bishop’s 1950s Brazil and California.
