Papingo Maminga is an author design firm created in 2011 by Marco Gutiérrez and Daniel Ghetti in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia.
The purpose of the brand was to create clothes that break with the schemes established in their country of ‘how to dress’
The designs are characterized by having a strong conceptual load, the main source of inspiration is the daily life of Latin American citizens.
With an avant-garde line, Papingo Maminga adheres to deconstructivism, organic morphology, pop culture, kitsch folklorism in Latin American cities, the nostalgia of the eighties and nineties of the middle class, the contrast of colors and textures, to harmonic dissonance, eclecticism, history, inclusion and communication.
Over the years Papingo Maminga gradually positions itself in the minds of Bolivians as a line of author design that breaks schemes, challenges the conventionalities of the environment and in turn generates designs highly identifiable by the consumer, who uses the garments as a communication tool.
