Don Quixote is not the only one to have lost his mind to a book. They say that when explorer Hernán Cortés came across a new land he could not help thinking he had found the paradise that Rodríguez de Montalvo described in his novel The Adventures of Esplandián. There a strong, beautiful queen ruled an army of warriors on an island brimming with gold and riches. The illusion was soon shattered when they discovered it was not an island, but it was too late: they had already baptised it and the name had already taken deep root, the rhizomes of which still nourish world maps today. It is California, the land of Calafia, queen of cliffs and mountains, of valleys and deserts, of readers' hearts, and now of linen and velvet.

Description:

Pure washed linen cushion cover in sand with exclusive embroidered Calafia design, invisible zipper and black tassel.

The linen weighs 390 gr/m² to guarantee high strength and quality.

Our linen is pre-washed and dyed to create unique softness and comfort.

Embroidery is an art that was invented by Romans and can be performed both manually and through a specific machine.

The process of embroidery requires as much creativity and dedication as a painting. Our drawings are sent to a technician, that turns the colours and sensations of the drawing into threads and empty spaces. That information is then typed into a machine of twelve needles where the operation begins. The process must be supervised at all times, because embroidery over linen is a particularly delicate process.

Our thistle designs are made of 91000 thread stitches, so that one thistle takes up to six hours to come to life.

In Lo de Manuela not one material is wasted. If a failure in the embroidery process would happen, the operation is paused and the embroidery is then fixed by an embroiderer, whose profession is a true species in danger of extinction nowadays.

We combine manual processes with fine machinery to ensure maximum quality and perfect our results. Our machines are channels through which we can apply our experience and technique, the power of the art of our drawings and our wish to impress.

These are unique and complex pieces.
