KBSisters - At that time we were both employed, with a "stable" job. But we also saw that our project was growing more and more... and we had the doubt of how far it could go, if we devoted all our hours and strength to it.
Therefore, and despite the objection of some and support of many, especially of our family, we started this adventure.
BaRock - I was looking for a way to work with my own ideas, to give free rein to my creativity... without negotiations. When I was working for someone else, there were many impositions: horrible projects, fixed schedules, overtime and difficult deadlines.
Now that I work for myself, I organize myself at my own pace and although it is true that I work long hours, it is not so hard for me: I have freedom to organize myself and to stop when I need to.
KBSisters - As our accessories are made with fabrics we bring from different parts of the world, many times the inspiration comes from a fabric we discover. Then, we also look at the fashion trends, the products that are in the news, what the customers need most...
Many times we create complements that don't exist and we would like them to exist (smiles).
BaRock - I have my little obsessions, the repetitive geometries, the complex and natural forms... as a language I use to develop ideas. (Pause). In the end, inspiration comes from everyday life, from something I've seen and like: a plant, an exhibition, a shape... Many times I get ideas when I'm doing other activities... and I start to obsess until I make the piece.
Once the pieces are made, then yes, I talk to my friends, who are my best customers... they always give me interesting ideas that make the design better.

KBSisters - We provide a different concept of manufacturing and consumption. We carry out all the work required to produce each of our products. As we work in the Basque Country, we are committed to decent working conditions. We also select and search for unique, different and excellent quality materials... Whoever buys a Kb Sisters, their bag, rucksack or turban can be used at any time of the year. (Proudly).
BaRock - Well, an original design you won't find on any other brand. I design pieces with parametric aesthetics and print them in 3D. Aesthetics is vere important to me: attractive, different and breaking. Also they are timeless, so you can wear them for years, they are not seasonal pieces. These pieces are made of high quality ultra light resin, so they are easy to wear, they are hand painted one by one (they are all different) and finished in silver. They are unique jewels.
BaRock - How difficult. Well... always one of the collection I'm making at the moment. I'm passionate about the pieces and I think they're the most beautiful in the world. I wear a lot Harria silver earrings, they are striking and people always ask about them.
KBSisters - We use Backpacks and Pouches a lot.
BaRock - Make a business plan to organize the ideas and objectives. And take it easy, it doesn't have to be right the first time, enjoy the process.
KBSisters - Our advice would be that, if you really believe in your project, and you are willing to sacrifice a lot for it, go for it. We learn from everything. Every experience is positive for your life.
