Hats are more than just hats. They are a way to express ourselves.
I design hats to be expressive, to provide that “spark”, but, equally important, that are practical and sustainable.
I like my clients to know they have been created with them in mind: Women and men who are free spirited, who appreciate design and pieces crafted with care.
A love story with textiles
There is something about working with textiles that feeds the soul: its tactile quality, its rhythms, the way it connects me to previous generations of women who expressed themselves through textile.
Different textile disciplines invite you to different experiences.
Feltmaking is an ancient and versatile craft. Allowing time, hands on their own are able to create the alchemy, and transform fibres into felt, with just the help of water and soap. It invites a slowing down, to follow the process and embrace some unanticipated results. And to a certain degree… to accept what happens…In felt making you can not undo what is done.
Embroidery is like meditation. the repetitive stitches, each one evidence of time and movement, of a slow pace.
Millinery invites you to problem solve, to embrace the challenges of constructing within limitations, and the most varied disciplines can be used to create hats.
The path that brought me here
My working life has been diverse: In hospitality, teaching, translation and working in an Embassy. I have always been creative. Jewelry making, millinery, felt making as hobbies were my path to becoming a textile artist.
A few years ago, taking leave from my job in the Spanish Embassy, I decided to follow a road for which I had no map, and explore working with textiles.
It is no coincidence that I chose textiles as the art discipline for me. The women in my family were and are skilled textile artists. Although they never called themselves artists. Women who produced amazing works of art in embroidery, lace, crochet or dress making never did. But artists they were and they are.
In tune with nature, at the heart of everything
I believe through textiles we can connect, both with the rhythms of nature and with people.
A concern about the impact of the fashion industry on both the environment and on people’s lives is at the core of my brand. Principles of sustainability are applied through all the decisions taken in the process (sourcing of materials, no waste policy, lables, packaging, upcycling materials etc…)
