SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS & FAIR WORKING CONDITIONS
Stefanie and Valerie came into contact with the art of Indian glass bead embroidery through a social project. Back in Berlin, the idea came up to translate this traditional embroidery method into modern, coded patterns. Manakaa means “bead or pearl” in Hindi. The appropriate title for a project whose concern is not only the product itself, but also the appreciation of the embroiderers and the fair use of resources.
After spending a few years sourcing fairly produced materials, searching for reliable partners, creating the designs, MANAKAA PROJECT was finally launched in 2019.
