Couture Ruana Lime Green + Vibrant Blue
Manos + Couture is a wool-for-summer collection, inspired by the windy and sometimes chilly summers in the Uruguayan East Coast, where a night cover is almost always needed. All of our pieces are woven in manual looms by women artisans that work gathered in cooperatives in rural Uruguay and are hand-dyed in the Manos del Uruguay laboratory.
An instant bestseller, the Huella ruana is woven in extrafine Merino wool with a touch of linen and viscose. Available in bi-color dye, whether it is the blue-lime green combination or the fuchsia-mango one, it is extremely unique and ready to conquer. One size fits all.
Each garment has a unique and unrepeatable character.
Manos + Couture presents "The Summer of Love"
Manos del Uruguay and Mirada Couture introduce The Summer of Love, a capsule collection inspired by old Ibiza vibes and the longing to fall freely in love, even for a brief, sweet time. Powered by the amazing artisanal dyeing expertise of craftsman Santiago Vera -who has been in Manos for almost 50 years-, The Summer of Love intervenes the classic Huella line (yes, the one you can wear at Parador La Huella in José Ignacio) with an array of vibrant tie-dyed colors. The off white natural shawl, ruana and triangle, woven by Manos’ artisans in Merino wool with a touch of linen and viscose, are individually dyed using the tie-dye or shibori technique, making each product uniquely special and one in which you’ll feel special too.
The Summer of Love presents an exciting palette of electric blue, lime green, orchid fuchsia and mango yellow. The artisanal procedure takes the colors to unexpected results, whether on their own or integrated into winner combinations: blue and green, fuchsia and yellow, fuchsia and blue and green and yellow.
Shoutout to local beauty and muse Ana Elena Lenoble who, with her natural looks, freshness and free spirit embodies the girl from that summer we shall never forget. The Summer of Love was shooted in José Ignacio, Uruguay.
