Crafture Box first edition is already in your hands! Yay!
Now we can say it: Crafture Box Autumn Edition contained three pieces of contemporary ceramics created by Oitenta and Arobe Cerámica.
As you know, Crafture was born in September 2019 as the first surprise subscription to handmade and sustainable objects, created exclusively for the community. Our goal was clear- to promote the consumption of valuable objects with values, while supporting and drawing attention to the work of independent creators.
As we were saying, the first edition of Crafture Box has already arrived to the hands of our beloved subscribers! Not only have they received the exclusive ceramic pieces for their desks, but also the story behind them.
Do you want to know who the makers behind the Crafture Box Autumn Edition are?
One of Crafture’s main goals is to show the history behind makers, who are the real protagonists of the pieces hidden inside the boxes.
The makers for the Autumn Edition were the ceramist Alejandro Roig, from Arobe Cerámica, and the designer Rafa, from Oitenta design studio, both based in the Ciudad Vieja of A Coruña (Galicia, Spain), the traditional crafts district of the city.
Together they created three pieces that blend Oitenta’s design, characterized by combining function, form and emotion, with the slow process of handmade contemporary ceramic objects, by using casting technique and an oxidized finishing that contrasts with the minimalist lines.
We invite you to visit their accounts and discover the wonders they create with their hands.
The same hands that created this family of desktop accessories made up of:
- A stand for mobile devices, unique for its functional design and inspired by nature.
- A planter for cacti and succulents
- A pot for all kinds of drawing or painting tools.
‘Crafture is a universe of new opportunities for creators. We need design and craftsmanship to be valued, in opposition to consumption of mass-produced objects. Crafture is itself a revolution.’
Rafael Fernández, Designer and Maker in Oitenta
We have to confess that we are thrilled about all the subscribers who have shared their receiving-the-surprise-CraftureBox-is-a-party moment in their social media. By sharing, you state that patient consumption without haste and with values is more present than ever.
