I liked a lot this couple’s work because I thought they were very coherents with their different products. And liked the colours too.
Las puertas del cielo is a festival located Carrera 1 Calle 68, around a church, whose main goal is to show the work of independant designers. It happened last weekend but I will let you know when they organise a new one.
From tomorrow, I will show you the work of designers who were there.
More information about Las puertas del cielo in there.
Last week, one of my friend called Cecile was organising a private sale at her flat. Lovely canvas, independant designers, and a lot more!
Thanks so much Cecile to give the opportunity to all those people to show their work! Hope you will do another one next year!

The idea was to study very popular patterns from Colombia and create a box out of them to get the real spirit of the country.
There are 4 different designs and 2 diffent quantities (180g and 250g). The target is tourists, or people who want to get some presents for their friends and family abroad. It will be sold in markets, hotels, etc…

This bag is from the Arhuaco Tribe of the Sierra Nevada, Colombia. Patterns are very simple but at the same time very nice. They are obvioulsy handmade by the women of the region.
You can buy this kinf of bags in there in you are interested.
I discovered the work of Andrea Cruz, Colombian designer from Cali through a friend, Marcia, who is selling her work in London. A touch of Colombia in beautiful products.
Andrea is creating handmade jewellery such as earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings made of silver, bronze and dipped in gold and decorated with pearls, crystals and beads.
You can also find her work in Spitafield Market in London. Follow on Twitter: @marciasquirrel.
A Chiva is an artisan rustic bus used in rural Colombia. Chivas are adapted to rural public transport, especially considering the mountainous geography of the Andean region of the country. In Bogotá, people rent chivas for the night to party and get drunk with aguardiente.
The buses are varied and characterized by being painted colorfully and that’s why I decided to get a pattern out of it. I think it represents well colours of Colombia.
