About

I grow up learning about textiles and I was tought by my parents the love for handmade and though I try to separate from knittngs by Studying English at the University I guess It was ment to be for me to fall in love with fibers and textures. In 2004 I decided to dedicate my life to this love 100% and I opended De Origen Chile, in La Ligua (known as the city of knittings). I am lucky to say that I love what I do and I get up everyday thinking of new colours to create or what to spin, I also try to learn more all the time, the thing I love the Most about Textiles is that there is so many new things to do all the time so I felt, Spin, knit, dye, weave, I enjoy shibori and batik too and try to get as much information as I can from my dad (textile engeneer).
