Ursa sources its organic merino lamb’s wool from the Patagonian village of Gan Gan (population 661) one yard at a time, employs Tehuelche native descendants to spin the wool, and then works with a women’s weaving collective based out of a Buenos Aires shantytown to finish the product. At the helm of this young project is American transplant Elizabeth Gleeson, whose ethical outlook ensures her wool designs are socially responsible, sustainable, and unique. Standouts include sweater dresses, cocoon-style sweaters, and t-shirts in summer-y hues. Ursa also plays with cotton prints, creating picnic blankets and bedsheets stamped with black tea. Book an appointment to visit the Facultad de Medicina atelier.
