Originally from Santiago de Compostela but now based on the island of La Palma in the Canary Islands, she opened an artisan sewing workshop, Obradoiro Martina, Martina’s Workshop in her native Galician. This project represents an innovation in the use of artisanal embroidery in fashion, while maintaining the levels of excellence typically seen in La Palma embroidery and respecting its traditions. She creates bridalwear, children’s clothes and accessories, and adapts traditional artisan trades to current trends and needs by applying traditional embroidery to modern styles and by using colourful patterns.
