Since childhood I love sewing ¡¡¡
I’m an artisan since more than 20 years. I currently live in Madrid but I'm Cuban.
Since my early childhood I learned sewing by watching my mother sew with her old sewing machine, equipped with leather pulley and pedals.
I starting practicing on that same old sewing machine, which was later on retrofitted with an electric motor. What a revelation was that! It enabled me to sew faster and only grew my desire to learn and create more! My initial creations were pot holders and dolls.
In adolescence I studied during three years at the Technical Arts Institute, where I was initiated in several techniques, such as drawing, working with seeds, working with leather, papier maché, dolls, ceramics etc.
After the Technical Arts Institute, I studied History during five years at the University of Habana, Cuba.
When I sit in front of a pile of fabrics, ready to start creating, time goes by without me noticing it. My hands seem to have a life of their own, ceaselessly churning new patrons and designs!
Every day is a renewed challenge: that of creating something new and original from a pile of cloth and fabrics that might have gone to waste.
Currently I am a licensed artisan at the Comunidad de Madrid. This license certifies the originality and quality of my creations.
Everything you buy in this shop is artesanal, completely hand made by me. Orders are delivered gift-wrapped and include a small gift on my behalf.
