Living Fibers was founded in 2017 by Mariana Baertl, a Peruvian fiber artist specializing in embroidered and woven pieces for home décor. The brand was born from the artist’s deeply integrated passion in creating things with her hands. Since its launch, Living Fibers has been steadily growing, attracting followers from around the world, and collaborating with brands such as We are Knitters.
The founder’s mission comes from a desire to encourage those who wish to start a new hobby, seek to formalize a future project, or aim to start their careers as textile artists. There are a variety of courses and tutorials offered on-site that present easy-to-learn techniques that anyone can engage with. Living Fiber aims to give individuals feelings of peace and relaxation while engaging with textile art.
The materials selected for Living Fibers are all inspired by the nature the artist has seen around the world. Each carefully sourced material is 100% natural, organic, and sustainable.
