    I love Barcelona, too… But Rome is my all-time-favourite city here in Europe, I think… Would love to visit it again!

    Oh thank you for this portrait! My heart says “ping” every time I read the familiar name of a square or “carrer”. Having lived in Barcelona for 4 years as a child, and after many, many visits over the past years it still feels like home!

Max + Herb

Some fibre businesses have been around for generations. And sometimes, a brave soul starts a new fibre business for the next generations. We were lucky to meet the wonderful, warm and inspiring Luciana Etchechoury, who very recently started her own fibre business. Luciana, a passionate Argentinian fibre artist, thought long and hard but then jumped at the chance to promote the beautiful Argentinian and Peruvian yarn and preserve their heritage with her new business she called Max + Herb.
