Maison Badigo is a French brand of South American manufacture.
Created by Lola Wallach in 2020, the brand has made a name for itself in the hearts of Parisian women and is now distributed in more than 90 outlets worldwide.
The key to this craze is to highlight the heritage and richness of Andean craftsmanship, but above all, the craftsmanship and excellence.
From the choice of materials to the finishing touches, including weaving and dyeing, Maison Badigo perpetuates the traditional and ancestral know-how.
Accessorist above all as the brand likes to recall, all the key pieces of the collections: hats, handbags and scarves are made entirely by hand, all with natural and ecological materials and treatments.
The universe of Maison Badigo in a few words is the warm and vivid colors of Latin America, an iconography that invites dreams and inspires us to travel.
Upon her return from deportation, Lola's paternal grandmother, Julia, worked as a leather worker in the trail.
Her maternal grandfather, Maurice, had his own brand: Harris Lans, and made skirts that he sold all over the world.
Lola's parents created a multi-brand women's ready-to-wear store in Paris that was a real incubator for all the young brands of the trail in the 2000s.
Lola had the schmatté in her skin (clothes in Yiddish), a taste for beauty, craftsmanship, and Parisian fashion.
When she created Maison Badigo in April 2020, her first intention was to honor the traditional, ancestral and ecological Andean handicraft of vegetable fiber.
It all began with a brightly colored bag, handmade from cactus fiber. Parisian women have become so infatuated with Maison Badigo's bags and hats that today Lola supports more than 50 families in the indigenous communities of Ecuador and Colombia.
An ethical, ecological and social adventure that contributes to local development and promotes the richness of Andean craftsmanship and heritage internationally.
Lola has two Ecuadorian cows named Maison and Badigo ;)
