Las flores de Greta is a team made up of three women, Antía, Uxía and Nuria, which was born at the end of 2017.
After learning the ecoprint technique, we began to work with it and develop it on different fabrics to analyze its possibilities. Gradually, based on trials and errors, a lot of experimenting, playing with the times, varying tissues and analyzing the effect of pigments and their variability within species throughout seasonal cycles we began to get the first samples so that little by little we have been creating a line of products that reflect the values we wanted to work with.
Ecoprint is a technique that consists of transferring the natural pigments found in leaves and flowers to fabrics of organic origin.
We develop the technique through a succession of handcrafted processes, which we work and integrate into our daily lives. The first, which gives rise to the others is the collection.
Every day we go out to the mountain in the first hour to collect leaves and wildflowers. Depending on the time of year in which we find ourselves, we work with one or another species.
