Magali Mendez

Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Magali embarked on a fulfilling journey within the realm of product design and production across various Argentine SMEs. Her experiences afforded her invaluable insights into production processes, material performance, and the environmental costs associated with these processes. From the outset, she championed the integration of sustainable processes and materials within her workplace, despite limited options. In 2017, she undertook professional training in sustainable strategic design, followed by a master’s degree in biodesign—focusing on incorporating biological principles into design processes for a more sustainable future—at Central Saint Martins, London, in 2020. In 2023, she joined as the Co-Founder at Tintte, a startup dedicated to minimizing the environmental impact of textile dyeing processes.
