South American Ethical Knitwear

Paula Martini’s famous clothing line, timeless and effortlessly chic, tells a story – one of sea, sand and steady wind.

Noble yarns, impeccable craftsmanship, a strong personal aesthetic and the charm of José Ignacio are all woven with care into each piece.


The setting is the fishing village of José Ignacio, where Paula arrived over 20 years ago and where her love for knitting began. Located on a peninsula in south-eastern Uruguay, José Ignacio, formerly a sleepy nook by the sea, has morphed over the years into one of the preferred international hotspots during the South American summer season.


ALLWINA helps to facilitate this beautiful partnership between maker and client through the beginning to end journey of the product. 


Latin America Sourced Yarns

Inspired by the great Uruguayan tradition of the handmade, along with elegant simplicity of her natural surroundings on the ocean, Paula’s all-season designs are a unique brand, in which each piece is crafted from a select choice of yarns sourced from across Latin America and and dyed by hand in her own atelier. Day-to-night, beach-to-cocktail these are garments that play with shape and volume in a wide variety of stitches and textures. They are pieces to be cherished and kept, always outliving seasonal trends.


Intimately Crafted By Hand

Because of Paula’s high standard of craftsmanship -and, of course, through the intimacy of the artisans’ own labors in executing her designs – these garments carry within them the sense of having been touched, enhancing the feeling of comfort and warmth in each. The pieces speak of the appreciation of patience and they become emotional clothing. Handmade was a genuine choice for Paula, an obvious extension of her natural surroundings, but it was also a way of preserving a craft that has always been practised by women in the area and that is not much embraced by younger generations.
