ESPANYOLET: Two New Yorkers are creating one-of-a-kind linen and ceramic items in Mallorca

 

I do my job as a hair stylist and colorist with much love, passion and dedication and I appreciate meeting people who are vibrating that same spirit. Artisans, who work consciously respecting the materials and traditions. When I first met Melissa Rosenbauer and Thomas Bossert, I felt an instant connection to this creative and inspiring couple behind “espanyolet”, an independent maker of superb handcrafted Mediterranean artisan items for the home, like hand painted vintage linen and hand formed ceramics, all made in Mallorca.

 

It’s with great enthusiasm that I share with you a bit of their extraordinary journey, how they landed in Mallorca and started to work and sell their amazing cloth & clay collection of espanyolet.

MONGE SHOES: Finest handmade shoes for men from Mallorca – a tribute to style!

 

I have to admit that until now, practically all my posts were mainly dedicated to the feminine world. So I decided to bring forth a subject that could appeal to both women and men: S-H-O-E-S.

Us women always get pretty excited about our high heels but we love to see our men go in style too, right? Well, in Palma de Mallorca there is a unique space, dedicated to the most authentic masculine footwear: Join me at MONGE’s shop, located in the historic center of Palma; it is a true paradise of good taste offering luxurious handmade shoes “Made in Mallorca”. 

 

I’m a real shoe enthusiast. They’re definitely one of the most crucial accessories to turn a good outfit, into a perfect one. I often choose which shoes I want to wear first, before I get dressed. I believe this accessory reveals a lot about someone’s personality. Sorry if you catch me staring at your shoes, I’m probably delighted by your shoes.

MARAT ATELIER – handmade hats from Mallorca to make you feel like a starlet

 

I really love hats, I always have. I wear them a lot, in winter and in summer. I adore that particular touch they add to my style.

When I was a little girl, back in Cologne, Germany, I used to dream of designing my own collection one day. Instead of making hats, I´m styling and coloring hair. Its obvious that the head is my passion. Now I had the chance to visit a great milliner, probably the best one on Mallorca. 

 

If you love wearing hats just like I do, I strongly recommend visiting MARAT ATELIER in Palma de Mallorca and meet the charming Marta Ortega. Listening to her profound voice and talking about such cool hats, will make you feel like you have to own one of those wonderful hats she has created.
