"Hajnalka Mandula was introduced to her career in fashion in her native Hungary by her grandmother. Her Hungarian upbringing, affinity for time-worn elements and love of nature are reflected in her label, 'Mandula'. Aligning traditional construction methods with modern architectural shapes, intricate detailing and old-world craftsmanship, Mandula is a union of modernism and antiquity.

Mandula is committed to the use and creation of raw, organic cotton; crinkled hand-dyed silks; boiled, hand-felted wool and cashmere and hand-washed, reclaimed leather. Hajnalka has experimented with natural-dyed cloth using coffee, tea, dirt and berries to create Mandula’s own earthy color palette. Every garment is worked and hand-crafted personally by Hajnalka and her small team in her design studio."
