Paulina Escobar,

Founder, Director and Designer of LE MOUTON VERT, was born in  the Chilean Patagonia. More specifically in Puerto Natales, province Última Esperanza, Region of Magallanes, Chile.

 

 

In 2011, she graduated as an Interior Designer in Santiago de Chile and then went to Switzerland for almost four years to exercise her profession as an interior architect for various companies.

 

In Switzerland she was allowed to live a new way of seeing and living life professionally and personally. In january 2014, at age 30, she decided to create her own project that valued a conscious lifestyle, used natural raw materials, and promoted awareness and respect for the environment. In doing so Le Mouton Vert was born. All work is done by local artisans throughout the mountainous regions of Chile and all textiles used are organic.

 

When she began Le Mouton Vert she worked with weavers and spinners in Swiss workshops to naturally dye wool crop in organic gardens of friends. She began with coarse tissue and a loom and machine. Soon afterward she then lived in France, Germany, Austria and Switzerland to focus on social work and continue to expand Le Mouton Vert.

 

In August of 2014, Paulina returned to Puerto Natales, to put all of her time towards 

LE MOUTON VERT (The Green Sheep). As the founder, she believes in utilizing organic wool from the Chilean Patagonia to meet the highest standards of natural process, quality and design. She hopes that the products of Le Mouton Vert generate consciousness in maintaining a "non-industrialized"  and responsible way of producing products in the world today.

 

 

"Thanks to every friend I met on the road, in the right place and the right time. With each new encounter, this journey is constructed and true for me, for you and for all"
