I met Petra Green by Instagram, and after a swap of goods, she suggested the possibility of making a collaboration together. After some mails I was threading my loom again with hand dyed painted wool yarn. I had sworn not to weave “ummus” fabric again. But I caught her enthusiasm with the idea of making rounded cushions. I sent the fabric to London and some months after, voilà! They are beautifully well done.
Don’t forget to visit her online shop here.

I’m so happy to show you the Eco bag I’ve made with the designer Deimante Meilune .
She has made a lovely work knitting and embroidering british wool and then I’ve used vegetable tanned leather to build a bag.
Although we wanted to make a small collection, due to work and distance (she lives in London and I live in Barcelona), we have managed to make this bag. Personally I hope we can, working together again and sharing, as now, our passion for green design and respect for the materials.
I’m working with the great eco-designer Deimante Meilune in a capsule collection of bags for the next season. We are joining forces and mixing few genuine techniques; weaving, knitting, embroidery, and more with one aim; offer a limited unique eco bags mixing tradition and cool design.
I’m working on a capsule collection in collaboration with someone I admire as an artist and as a person. Speaking of ceramist Lusesita. This feels very special for me to work with someone like her and the bags will be ready soon! Don’t miss them!
