Our founder, Antonia Iannucci, is an Italian designer who founded Xtinctio after working in the fashion industry for 25 years. When her twin girls were born she found it hard to reconcile the negative environmental impact of the apparel industry with building a future for her children. Antonia felt compelled to seek out a more positive and responsible role. Antonia believes that every kind of life is important and we still remain very unaware of the impact of how these animals impact ourselves and other lives on the planet. However, we have made strides in raising consciousness toward this and her hope is that as we continue to pursue these discoveries we will really begin to understand in more tangible ways our interconnection to all beings and to respect life in all forms.
Please join her on the front lines of the battle to preserve our biodiversity.
