BARDAJ ~ woven from the three founders first names, symbolic of their unity and strength as a tripod of light. They met at Tierra Mitica, in the jungles of Peru, in the winter of 2018.
Through personal transformation, courage and connection they shared in a workshop, and a little bit of magic, BARDAJ was formed.
They chose then to dive into the project with trust, unite their visions, and launch a company to spread inspiration, creativity and love through the power of light and art.
