Working from her garden studio on the South East coast of England, Esme is inspired by the textures of pebbles on the beaches and the cliffs that surround them. Infusing ancient folklore of the sea and woodlands, she skillfully interweaves these narratives into the unique silhouettes of her creations.

The women in the cooperative meet regularly to discuss new designs and develop their skills. To complete a full textile takes around three days and all ten weavers work from home, allowing them to take care of their families.

In 1992, five women, Celestina, Martina, Encarnación, Rosario and Nicolasa, came together to create the San Juan Cooperative out of a need for work and to support their families and offer a better life for their children.

Nestled in their small workshop, Analía and Susana roll up their sleeves and personally cultivate and nurture the plants used in their creations.  Their process involves planting, cultivating, and harvesting plants, with a process that is respectful of the environment, ensuring that each bundle of Sahumo cleaners is a testament to their artisanal dedication.
