Haciendo el Indio
I had a lovely email from Cristina recently about her utterly charming shop Hacienda el Indio. Cristina is an illustrator and designer and sounds like a fascinating person to know — she grew up in different countries, her richly creative childhood eventually leading her to study at Central St. Martins School of Design and Parsons School of Art & Design. Following this she worked for a variety of large communication, decoration and entertainment companies. One day she decided to leave the big city and settle near the Mediterranean with her family, where with the help of her children she rediscovered the joys of childhood and started her lovely shop Hacienda el Indio. Now she designs and creates felt and linen dolls, unique wall art, beautiful printed cotton accessories, illustrations, small jewels, and stationery. You can see more of her enchanting work at Haciendo el Indio here.
