MOTHER & DAUGHTER

Dressing women of all ages is a purpose for Andiata. To celebrate Mother’s Day we have interviewed mothers and daughters of different ages with a diverse way of dressing. From them we have discovered that women are looking for quality pieces that can last from season to season. Clothing is often seen as a moment of sharing and Andiata wants to keep that as a tradition.
