Textile artist Mariana Baertl is the creator behind a brand called Living Fibers; a name couldn’t be more striking for the beautiful works she creates. Using fibers and yarns from around the world, Mariana carefully embroiders and weaves the textiles into gorgeous, vivid artworks that have amazing textures and color palettes. Love!
Mariana was raised in Lima, Peru where she was surrounded by the country’s traditional textile crafts. She studied fashion design before moving to Buenos Aires and later Barcelona, where she worked in Haute Couture and pattern making. It was after moving back to Lima and working as a fashion designer that she started to focus on her own fiber creations. She finds most of her inspirations from nature and the movement and shapes that water and wind create.
A selection of her works is currently available in her shop!
