Founding Story

Isabella Spataro, founder and Creative Director of Della Terra, lived and breathed fashion since birth - learning the ins and outs of her family’s garment manufacturing factory in Colombia. She has always dreamed of becoming a fashion designer and when it came time to go to school Isabella moved to NYC to fulfill her dream and attend Art school.

During her 8 years living in New York, Isabella gained experience working for an array of world renowned Fashion houses. However, gaining an insider look behind the curtains of the fashion industry also brought on the realization that the fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries int he world, and one that has little regard for the future of the people wearing it as well as the planet.

It was with that wake up call that she decided to get certified as a Sustainable Designer and shift her career path. She moved to Guatemala and later on to South Africa to work with artisans.

After years of working for other brands she finally decided to start her own business and use everything she had learnt to create Della Terra.
