The latest trend from Ecuador
WHO… Sensi Studio was launched in 2010 as a design and product label by Stephany Sensi. Sensi studied Fashion Design at Istituto Marangoni in Milan, and later earned her master’s degree in Brand Management in the same institution (2006). She then worked alongside Tomas Maier for his eponymous brand, based in Miami (2006-2010).
DOES WHAT… Sensi Studio produces collections that include various handmade products, focusing in particular on genuine panama hats, hand woven handbags, and other accessories. More recently she has started developing also a clothing line to offer more choices to her clients.
…WHERE Sensi Studio products are all manufactured in Ecuador with an artisanal concept. All products are made using a traditional technique and using Ecuadorian toquilla straw. Her technique and aesthetics have been the perfect approach for a fashion savvy clientele.
AND HOW IS IT ETHICAL… The company works in a close environment of social responsibility with the artisans and their craft. Besides working with local artisans and keeping alive Ecuadorian traditions, they also source all their materials locally. The combined efforts of the company with the local craftsmanship create fine products with a modern twist and aesthetic.
