Then, to our surprise, Nash made a detailed podcast about their visit to the mill! We think that she describe the atmosphere of malabrigo so well!
So, we want to share with you this wonderful video of Nash!


Thanks Nash! 🙂

And how behind every design there is a story to be told, we share a text written for the designer:

” We like our cowls robust – they need to be able to stand up to wind and rain. We also like our cowls pretty, so it´s lucky that Kallista is both clever and beautiful (like one of our favorite country music stars!)”
