There is an English proverb that says "Year of snow fruit will grow". Our Catalan mountains, the Pyrenees, start this 2014 covered with snow and ice. So, we will keep on working hard to get a great harvest. This is our new year wish for everyone!.
We will see the fruits very soon. Wild horses find food even in winter, and this way they survive. Times are hard here in Catalonia, but we will also survive.
The team of Mercat Artesans wants to wish you a happy new year with these winter pictures.
We are glad to introduce you a new crafter: Crochetine.
Her work is made with crochet. She lets her imagination fly, in a world of threads and beads, looking for the best combination of colours and texture.
These jewels are soft and comfortable.
Don't miss the crochet tubes, they have an eighties look!
Fall...everything changes. Not only the landscape, but also our mood as the sun gets down and night takes advantage.
The threes change their dresses. The forest brings us new fruits and now, harvest time, the leaves turn to gold. And here comes our new jewel.
The artist has searched the shape and the colours of the leaves that become brown. Chlorophyll disappears and arise other pigments more primitives.
This pendant is enameled on copper, and has a fine sterling silver coat. You can find it at our shop and the price is 40€.
Available at: harvest pendant
We are glad to introduce a new range of products made with Rag crochet.
These items are made by the craftwoman Ana Basanta from Barcelona, with supplies from Biometro.
"Trapilho" is the original Portuguese word for Rag. It is made from recycled T-shirts, bed sheets and other fabric scraps.
