“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.” BaRock
“…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 “ KBSisters
What is your contribution against ‘fast fashion’ and the concept of ‘buy -use twice -get rid of it’?
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.
Your favourite collection or product is…
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.
An advice for any woman who is thinking of starting a business… with her own hands.
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.
I hope these three women have inspired you as much as they have inspired me. See you in June. Until then, I’ll read you in the comments :)
