A project about wearables.
BALMASEDA is a small label that creates one-of-a-kind garments and products that embrace mindful making processes by combining humble materials with exquisite artisanal techniques. A hands-on manifesto of the symbiotic relationship we can have with our materials, what we make, use, eat, and the environment.Produced in small batches using exclusively ethically grown/processed fibers and recycled materials – sourced locally whenever possible. This project explores the realm between Art and Craft, and involves development of new techniques while maintaining a deeply rooted respect for traditional craftsmanship.
It is designed/knit/spun/stitched/dyed by Zaida Adriana Goveo Balmaseda (me), and produced in collaboration with mother/seamstress/creative marvel (with magical hands), and my wonderful studio assistants between NY, and Puerto Rico.
