Artesanía de Galicia goes back to Formex
Artesanía de Galicia goes back to Formex to present a collection of decorative and interior design pieces created by 43 Galician artisans. Porcelain, paper, glass, handwoven pieces, leather goods or traditional figures made of crumb go together with ceramics, traditional basketry, textile basketry, silver, lighting and wooden and cutlery kitchen pieces.
Artesanía de Galicia is a brand representing contemporary artisans from Galicia, in the northwest of Spain. It includes high quality products, which are carefully designed and tell a fascinating story: the roots of our culture combined with contemporary design, the personality of the creators and the skill of their hands. As a result, the conscious action of the artist is reflected during the process of creation of the piece. Nowadays, Artesanía de Galicia comprises about 600 handicraft companies from different fields; and for each Formex we select the pieces and creators which adapt the best to the field of decoration and interior design.
Handicrafts are an excellent choice for interior design as a way of showing off the environment itself, not only because of their aesthetic nature but because they provide personality, exclusiveness and authenticity. Artesanía de Galicia presents a wide range of products in which raw materials become their essence, since craftsmen have made the most of them. Some examples are the use of autochthonous wood in wood turning and basketry pieces; stone; crumb in traditional figures from San Andrés de Teixido; Galician clay in ceramics and pottery; or wool which is hand-dyed with natural dyes. In these cases, the materials are key in the final design, and they enhance the authenticity, simplicity and extreme beauty of the pieces, in line with contemporary design.
