A couple of weeks ago, I visited one of those magic spots that seem to live in a timeless place where past and present merge without distinction. A small textile workshop in the center of the island (Majorca, for those who are new to the blog) where they produce textile using the most traditional techniques. During the 19th century there were many factories in Majorca producing textiles, unfortunately nowadays there are just two small workshops left. A growing interest in this crafted product is, gratefully, guaranteeing the survival of these two spots. I visited Bujosa Textil, a third generation family business, that show me their secrets and here I share them with you.
I image Coco Chanel could have been the inspiration for this outfit with the incorporation of two of her most iconic pieces captured in this look!
Have you heard about circular economy? The circular economy is inspired by nature and the main principle is to reuse all the byproducts (waste products) generated during a manufacturing process. Unfortunately, in our current society is rare and in most cases, production byproducts are considered as waste and discharged. Fortunately for us, more and more people are understanding that natural resources are limited and our current economic system is unsustainable long term.
