Desedamas textile art is created by sisters, Cecília and Mercè from La Llacuna, Barcelona Spain. Their hand painted silks are “contemporary, vibrant and textured” and such a unique way to enjoy abstract art.
“We believe that part of our energy is impregnated in the pieces, and that this makes them unique and special. We also believe that each piece finds its person, its ‘match'”.
