Nelson Sepulveda, passionate and expert in handcraft techniques, collaborates closely with handcrafters to understand their history, their identity, their knowledge, their material resources and their process of work.

He has refined, transmuted, and reinvented its usage for over 85 years in what some would call an obsessive dedication, purposefully refusing the boundary between art and object. His repertoire now extends from traditional camel belts to avant-garde three-dimensional objects and seamless dresses. His tools: his hands. His universe: the magnificent explosion of braided colors.

The story started in the corner of a dark shop in Alexandria, Egypt. There was a shambles of items straight out of the One Thousand and One Nights. Emilie spotted an orange necklace, made of tiny beads, took it in the palm of her hands and stroked it. This tiny snake of living light was about to change her life.
The orange necklace remained an enigma for a long time. No matter how much Emilie studied it, analyzed it and dismantled it, she could not penetrate the mystery of its manufacture. Until the day she understood that it had been made by a right-handed woman… From that moment on, left-handed Emilie began to redesign the whole technique the other way around.
With a consumer ready to embrace the rare, the unravelled and the irregular in this quest for soul in a product, the arts and crafts movement is back at the forefront of fashion and design.

Some craft items will become new design collectibles within a matter of decades, and already we see the prices of some textiles, objects and artworks escalating to greater and never-before imagined heights…

Things you need to know about Over 55s life insurance:
Premiums stop after your 95th birthday but you still enjoy cover for the rest of your life.

After the first year regardless of the cause of death we will pay your cash sum. Depending on how long you live, the total sum paid in premiums may be more than the cash sum payable on death. If you stop paying your premiums before the end of your policy your cover will stop 85 days after your missed premium and you won&rsquo t get anything back. This isn&rsquo t a savings or investment product and has no cash value unless a valid claim is made. Inflation will reduce the buying power of your cash sum in the future.
