Colmillo de Morsa was born in Barcelona in late 2009.
The values of the brand reside in the attention to detail and rescuing the handcraft beginnings, a union between tradition and modernity. Elisabet Vallecillo, designer, finds her inspiration in primary elements, organic elements and creative nature. The raw material is characterized by natural fabrics that transmits warmth and personal sensibility.
The brand name Colmillo de Morsa (meaning ‘walrus tusk’) contains its first premise: beautiful things have infinite forms, so do the people that look at them.
We believe in buying local, in a sustainable fashion, and more importantly that things and people’s mindset can evolve in a positive way on these topics.
All of our clothes are designed, produced and assembled in Barcelona, and we want our brand to show this local aspect that is the core of our vision.
