Yanet

We are so lucky to work with Yanet since the beginning of ARTO, one year ago so far. Yanet is the responsible of sewing all of our garments from her home. She has an incredibly experience sewing and also designing. She has worked for local fashion brands and designers for about more than ten years in which she had learn and also challenge herself. Yanet is a really communicative and kind woman. Whenever I have the opportunity to visit her we take serious decisions related to the sewing details of the garments and also she suggest me ideas. I consider this is a group work and I feel really grateful to have her in my team. Every piece is special.

We offer her a fair and puntual paid for the work she do. In addition we believe in treating her with not only respect, also dignity. She is like a familiar for ARTO. In this way we prevent any form of harassment or abuse in the workplace. In addition, we work with people in relation with their abilities not based on personal characteristics or beliefs.

Lady Ann

Im the founder and designer of ARTO. My roles in the brand are infinite and Im proud you can join with me during this journey of ARTO. Im the responsible of the selection of fabrics and secondhand clothes that are used in the design stage. Also, I thoroughly check every finished garment before you buy them. Sometimes I have to make the patterns or cut the textil or sew, everyday is different and also a challenge. Every detail counts. Every concept of every collection is created by me. The storytelling of ARTO is really personal and also intimate. It is like a introspective. The events that I have lived let me communicate through poems how I really feel about a theme or subject. Also, the poems are the media in which ARTO communicates their concepts. ARTO is more than a brand, its an open diary and also a universe in which I invite you to be part. When I finished the career of fashion design, I was really in a trouble of how to really make a change in the industry, there is always something to be made so I decided to create ARTO. If I have to design responsibly I have to make things in a right way and that is what we are doing in ARTO. 

Benita

I met Benita two or three years ago in a course of introducing design knitting. Then I discovered her work and I was really impressed. Undoubtely I ask her to work in some pieces for ARTO. She has an incredibly experience knitting with crochet and also designing. Benita is also really patient and dedicated to her work. Every piece she had knitted for ARTO has taken here more than two weeks or maybe 1 month. Every detail is important and she is a really skilled knitter. In addition, she had worked with for local fashion brands and designers. What we always laugh together is the complexity of every piece I design, every piece is a challenge but Im really happy to work with here whenever I design a knit garment.

We offer her a fair and puntual paid for the work she do. In addition we believe in treating her with not only respect, also dignity. She is like a familiar for ARTO. In this way we prevent any form of harassment or abuse in the workplace. In addition, we work with people in relation with their abilities not based on personal characteristics or beliefs.
