Carro is an Argentinian design lab focused in innovation and upcycling.
Based in Buenos Aires since 2009, works in the creation of carrying accessories made with non conventional and reused materials.
We are Carro because we move, advance and transport.
We design by keeping a close eye on the concept of portability. Our products function as connection elements that cross bridges, transcend boundaries, and contains the fragments that comprise our users identities.
Our premise is to create functional , high durability products with special attention to details.
ASSEMBLING DIVERSITY TO BUILD DIFERENTNESS.
TRASH BECOME TREASURES
Currently we are working with a material created by CARRO from recovered nets and plastic bags. We named this material RENET. RENET is resistant, light, waterproof, easy to clean & 100% RECYCLED PLASTIC.
We offer design and manufacture service for the corporate sector .
Business gifts, events souvenirs, costume pieces for stage and films.
We specialize in discards management and reutilization. The productions can be realized using your company discards, such as billboards, production remainings, packaging , etc.

In addition to the work as a brand, we work with the Ministry of Culture teaching workshops about accessories manufacture to vulnerable citizens.
All the pieces built by the students are made with reused billboards provided by Buenos Aires City Goverment.
We also manage productions with reused billboards for goverment events, guiding the students through the process.
Currently we are teaching the workshop at Villa 20 and Villa 31, Buenos Aires.
