Fiorella was born in Lima, Peru. In 2014, she traveled to Peru and took an artisan and textile route in Huancayo, Peru. And it was not until 2018 and with two small children, Freja and Thiago, that she decided to change the blog’s theme, but without changing its name. She went from writing about Scandinavian design to sharing Peru, its artisans, textiles, and handicrafts as sources of inspiration.
It motivated me to return to Peru and take an artisan and textile route in Huancayo. The experience made me reconnect with our tradition, crafts, and ancestral techniques in one of the many artisanal routes that exist in Peru. At that moment, the idea of creating a home décor brand that reassessed our tradition hand in hand with contemporary design came to mind.
Pregnancies and maternity leave made me postpone that dream a little bit. So I changed the theme of my blog and started writing about Peru, artisans, textiles, and crafts as sources of inspiration.
In 2022 and finishing my third maternity leave, I decided to take the giant leap from the blog to create in collaboration with Peruvian artisans, a home décor brand in the perfect combination of design, tradition, and sustainability.
