BALMASEDA has a holistic approach to design; a hands-on manifesto that explores the symbiotic relationship we that we could all have with our clothing.
Being true believers in quality over quantity, our perpetual quest for perfection engages diligent research and development of new methods, while maintaining a deeply rooted respect for traditional craftsmanship.
Exploring the realm between art and fashion, we aspire to create multi-use garments that emphasize a different kind of luxury; one that combines humble materials with exquisite artisanal techniques. These timeless, future-heirloom pieces are equally beautiful inside and out.
Our work illustrates the meaningful results we can obtain by using alternative methods of production that are fair to everyone and everything. We support local industries through collaboration with uniquely talented local artisans, working exclusively with recycled and organic materials, and by exporting only the end product.
We create non-seasonal capsule collections for people who appreciate true craftsmanship; those willing to push the boundaries and stand out from the crowd.
BALMASEDA is designed/knit/spun/dyed by artist/designer/concoctionist Zaida Adriana Goveo Balmaseda, and produced in collaboration with mother/seamstress/creative marvel (with magical hands) between Brooklyn NY, Upstate NY, and Puerto Rico.
