Who is Juana de Arco
Juana de Arco was born in 1998 in the Palermo Viejo neighborhood, Buenos Aires, Argentina, by the hand of Mariana Cortés, UBA designer and artist Inspired by nature, art and recovering Latin American textile techniques, for each collection Mariana draws the textiles that are printed by hand in an infinite variety of colors and turn each garment into a unique piece.
Currently, Juana de Arco has stores in Buenos Aires and Japan; Its products are also marketed in different cities in the United States and Europe.
The process of creating a handmade pattern for Juana de Arco began with inspiration and sketching. Juana would spend countless hours drawing and refining her designs, capturing the essence of the Argentine landscape and incorporating elements of nature into her work.
Once the design was finalized, Juana would select the finest threads and materials for her project. She was meticulous in her selection, carefully considering the colors, textures, and weight of the materials to ensure that they would complement her design and bring her vision to life.
With her materials ready, Juana would begin the process of printing her pattern onto the fabric. She used traditional techniques and a variety of colors to create a vibrant and intricate pattern that reflected the beauty of her surroundings.

Such as Head Bands, scrunchies, lingerie entirely made with patchwork, yoga mat straps, home decor. Slow Fashion. We create a new small capsule every 6 months maintaining our base line. We state you can use +10Y one of our garments and it will still be impeccable.
In our quest to help our community we worked with Argentinian social project “Enhebrando Metas”, it is a social organization that gives jobs to women in social need in Santa Fe, Argentina. They had produce our yoga line, kids line and our accessories on the past. We constantly seek to help the community. In the Argentine crisis of 2001, we created PROJECT NIDO which consisted of giving work to the husbands of our seamstresses who had lost their jobs. Teaching them dressmaking techniques and creating the NIDO product line for them to make.
In the Coronavirus crisis we generated PROJECT NAMASTE. This project consists in the donation of 1 face mask to a NGO for each face mask sold. In this way, a fivefold impact is achieved: the client takes care of himself, takes care of his environment, helps a seamstress, helps people in need (through NGOs) and helps a SME (Joan of Arc).
