DESIGNED BY MÓNICA JUVERA, LOOPE BAGS ARE HANDMADE FROM VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER, PRODUCED IN small quantities by some of the best craftspeople in EUROPE.
MÓNICA'S background COMES FROM ARCHITECTURE, WINNING several awards in international competitions during THE LAST 12 YEARS. BORN IN MÉXICO, SHE MOVED TO BARCELONA IN 1999 MOTIVATED BY THE INTENSIVE CREATIVE LIFE OF THE CITY. IN 2005 SHE CO-FOUND THE STUDIO MXSI UPON RECEIVING THE FIRST PRIZE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE FEDERICO GARCIA LORCA CENTRE IN GRANADA, SPAIN.
INTERESTED IN ALL SCALES OF DESIGN, IN 2012 SHE STARTED WORKING IN SOME SMALL OBJECTS AS A REACTION to THe ESTABLISHED APPROACH TO CONSUMERISM, aesthetic AND WASTE OF THE MASS AND LUXURY MARKET. LOOPE BORN AS A RESPONSE TO THIS CONCERN using GEOMETRY AND SUSTAINABLE-LONG LASTING MATERIALS AS MAIN TOOLS.
