Candelaria – designer of Mandawa, grew up in the countryside of a small town in Buenos Aires. Being part of a large family, she and her cousins used to go to the stream to fish, go horseback riding to a neighboring town, and get lost in its avenues of more than 100 years. Having had the opportunity to enjoy the countryside her whole life, when she decided to create her brand she decided she wanted to show her culture and her childhood – the Argentinian tradition, their love for their land and country.So she created Mandawa in 2016, a brand of bags that are handmade using leather, which is synonymous with Argentina. Candelaria’s idea is to create products that will last a lifetime, not a short time.
