Meet Sofia Salazar, another great talent I discovered through Instagram. Sofia Salazar is an Argentinian textile designer, currently living in the UK. It ins not a coincidence that she became a textile design as both of her parents are artists and always worked freelance.
“I grew up surrounded by people that ‘made things’ for a living. Whether it was clothing, accessories, tapestries or even houses, they were building, they were creating – and that really had an impact on my whole perception of life and family and career. I feel very lucky to have been raised among them.”

She makes hand-embroidered sweatshirt and accessories, all made to order. It takes a week for your sweatshirt to be ready. See a video of how she works here.
“Being the owner of my time and able to work only with what I consider worth it. That’s success, that’s what I want in my life.” – Sofia Salazar
