    Meet Elena


    With a background in design and working in different agencies, Elena now thrives in a setting where her hands craft the narrative.

    Her creative sanctuary now lies within the cosy, minimalist confines of her studio, where surplus materials are given a second wind. 

    Leather, rattan and textiles are her canvas, through which she crafts unique designs.

    Her love for crafting isn’t confined to her studio; it extends into the workshops she hosts. With a blend of knowledge, passion and a hands-on teaching approach, Elena not only inspires others to see the latent potential in surplus materials but also fosters a space for creative interaction and growth.
