Don Baez es la marca uruguaya que utiliza la más suave y preciada de las fibras lanares, transformadas en diseños de alto impacto estético. En Uruguay nos caracterizamos por producir lanas de excelente calidad con métodos agrícolas 100% sostenibles. Una fibra tan antigua como moderna por su carácter biodegradable, renovable, y reciclable. Nos caracterizamos por utilizar la lana en su color natural; desarrollando las cualidades expresivas de la lana dada por la naturaleza ovina: crudo, visón y chocolate. Mediante una combinación de fibras especialmente estudiada, generamos un universo de texturas muy diverso y con mucho carácter. Promovemos el concepto de la moda sostenible a través de una línea de diseño limpia y atemporal. Detalles ingeniosos hacen honor a un material que perdura de generación en generación. Logramos un producto que sigue el ritmo de lo natural y no de tendencias efímeras. Gracias a la versatilidad de la lana y utilizando diferentes técnicas artesanales e industriales logramos una amplia colección de indumentaria, hogar y accesorios para toda la familia. Diseñamos y fabricamos productos nobles y naturales hechos 100% en Uruguay.
