Another glance of the product coming…
Today I went to see an exhibition about a illustrator and poet for children who had a lot of success a long time ago: Rafael Pombo.

I really fell in love with patterns in Colombia, and I am going to do a lot of things with them.
A bit quiet lately… quite busy working on a product that I will show very soon.
A glance of it:
Will keep you updated about that.

Coffee is obviously the most important topic of the region. And there are some nice places to go and discover how to grow coffee.
The region and the plantations are quite beautiful… Everything is so green!
I liked very much this cup’s design in enamel. Unbreakable for the drinks of the workers who have to go and work far from the farm.
However, we went to a place that was quite disappointing: they didn’t explain well what happens to the coffee seeds once you picked it up. Except when you drink it. I give you the address in case you don’t find anything or to advice you not to go I suppose. Recuca.

Wanted to show you the typical illustrations used for ages in books to learn how to read. What I like about it: the topics are simple things in everyday Colombian life: the Mama (Mum), the Pueblo (Village), or even the Torrero.
The quality of the paper is so bad that you can see the illustrations of the other page. But it has its charm.
The middle-aged women of Mario’s family were very happy to tell me this was very important in their childhoods.

For the first day of the year, I will show you a calendar that I have found beautifully designed. This is an almanac that includes information on what, how and when to plant in Colombia at different time of the year. It has been made by Puslar de la Tierra.
This one is from March 2012 until March 2013.
Like this Colombian movie very much: the Wind Journeys.
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013!
