I Spy – Chocolate Creative……….
I had the great pleasure last night, to meet Margarita Lorenzo, the designer behind Chocolate Creative, at an event organised by the lovely people at mydeco.
Margarita started out as a graphic designer after training in fine art, but her love of textiles drove her to learn and discover new ways to apply her graphics knowledge to fabrics.
Her collections are hand-made, from the drawing of the pattern to the silk screen printing to the sewing. Some of her cushions are a delightful combination of silk screen printing and cross stitch, with beautiful ribbon ties. A gorgeous mix of nostalgia and sophistication.
It was lovely to hear her talking passionately about the crafts she learned as child in Spain and her desire to use these skills in a more contemporary way.
Of course we all had a few glasses of wine and a good gossip too. And mydeco shared with us a new blogging feature that will soon be available on their website.
But more about that next week…
