Inspired by Nature

we create sustainable

non-seasonal products

without gender stereotypes.

"Bayíri" means "to invoke" for the Desana Indigenous Tribe from Colombian Amazon.  (based in the book Desana: simbolismo de los indios Tukano del Vaupés from Gerardo Raichel-Dolmatoff, Bogotá,1968)

 

This word invites us to get closer to our animal spirits and celebrate special moments in our lives.

Hi! I’m Gisella, BaYíRi's Designer & Creature Knitter.

Homo sapiens sapiens from Bogotá, Colombia ☀︎

I'm a Textile and Graphic Designer with a Biology background.

I love knitting and creating products that tell stories and are functional at the same time.

I enjoy making family of objects instead of lonely products, cause everybody enjoys company ☺︎.

After several years of experience as Designer in different Spanish brands I decided to create my own, where products could talk for themselves and serve as learning tools. 

Our consumption habits must change, everybody know that, so its time to do it.

Buy less, buy better. Buy products that are made in a respectful way for people and the  environment, this includes the whole product chain, from the material development to the product fabrication and products life beyond your use. Its a long process with many hands involved, including yours.

Lets create a close-knit community of conscious planet friendly knit lovers ❤︎
