His textile work includes a variety of shades that are mixed with the blue of the ocean, the brown tones of the mountains and the green of the countryside, with which he creates a collection of fashion and hand-painted textile accessories, such as scarves, masks and decoration fabrics, in an explosion of color and natural and unique chromatic tones.

Visitors will be able to purchase at workshop prices the products that make up the sample, which will be exhibited in the Regional Craft Center of Murcia in September and in Lorca in October. FROM IBERIA TO ALMODÓVAR
