Hello! I started this brand after a commission for the designer Mikel Colás (www.mikelcolas.es). Mikel asked me for the accessories for his collection "Drama", which he would present at Madrid Fashion Week 2016. There I was able to materialize some ideas brought from the architecture that I had in my head for a long time. At the same time I rediscovered the pleasure of manual creation: the beauty of direct contact with materials and the process until they become pieces of craftsmanship.


In 2017 I was living in Ibiza and working in an architecture studio. I was starting to learn macramé techniques when I received another commission: a series of hanging planters for the patio of a new place in Santa Gertrudis. From there I began to delve into a new universe to create with my hands: the macramé. I was immediately hooked on its patterns, the hidden geometry of its knots and the infinite possibilities of its tapestries. And since then... I haven't been able to stop.


Today I live in Madrid and my house has become a workshop. Everything is full of sticks that I pick up every time I go to the French southwest, plywood templates, rope, paint, brushes etc etc etc. By day I am an architect and by night, an artisan.


If you live in Madrid you can stop by Planthae (www.planthae.com). There you can find my hanging planters and some of my pieces. Oh, and I also teach some courses!


Each of my pieces is unique and I also create them on demand. Both earrings and tapestries. You put the ideas and I put the hands. Write to me and we talk.


Thank you for visiting my store!
