Slow Design: Soulful Handmade Goods from Dora Daar

We very first took observe of Barcelona-dependent design and style studio/innovative company Dora Daar when we stumbled on their Oráculo Carpet, a circular woven rug that wraps about the foundation of a tree. It was built by founders and most effective close friends Nat Sly and Pepi de Boissieu soon after a trip to Senegal, where by it’s frequent to see family members collect under the shade of a tree. “[It] was their location of reunion,” they say. “Under the canopy of the trees, each day dramas and shifting enjoy tales were performed out.”

This interest to the poetry in human-designed objects is evident in all the solutions they’ve curated for their on line retail outlet. The selection is spare—just 23 things and a few workshops (one particular on how to create altars, a further on astrology, and a 3rd on meditative drawing)—but each individual single factor feels regarded as and effectively-produced (the two collaborate with artisans, who execute their strategies).

From their internet site: “We intention for and deeply think in modifying the way we produce and eat. All of our projects are regionally sourced and sustainable. We are engaged with the human beings that manufacture every of our products and therefore fully commited to reasonable trade. We feel that this is the new luxurious, a single that is created honestly, in truth, with actual time and thought place into just about every challenge.”

Below, a choice of our favorites from Dora Daar.
