Andrea Insua is a designer with Italian and Guatemalan roots who resides in Italy since 2006. She obtained a diploma for Interior and Garden Design before earning a degree in Industrial design from the School of Architecture in La Sapieza University, Rome, Italy, where she graduated from with Summa Cum Laude honors in 2012. Her interest in the Mayan textiles grew while working in her thesis project, “Tessuti degli Indigeni del Guatemala - Progetto di una Collezione”. She has a master’s degree in Fashion Communication, awarded by the Accademia di Costume e Moda di Roma (Rome, Italy), where she also did a course on Handbags Prototyping.
Andrea has been able to fulfill her dream of having her own brand in big part because of her origins, her determination, and her passion for fashion and design. She has been inspired by and promotes the “Made in Italy” concept, as well as the handcrafted Mayan textiles. With a combination of both elements, she has created unique pieces as a result of the fusion of two cultures.
