We designed and produced authentic Andean textiles for a brand new Soho restaurant Casita Andina by Martin Morales owner of the very successful Ceviche & Andina. The brief was to deliver a balance of traditional design with added a contemporary style, whilst keeping the fabric durable enough for a demanding commercial setting - no easy feat! Designed in London and ethically hand woven by Andean weavers through Awamaki, a fantastic social social enterprise based in Peru that empowers rural Andean women by connecting them to global markets. We designed fabric for the banquette seating backs, textiles inserted into tables, the exterior sign, as well as custom lampshades.
