But the Antártida collection hides much more that winter inspiration, it is an ode to the wonders of nature and, above all, a call to attention for taking care of it. We often forget this nature we used to cherish and take care of, forgetting it's power and fragility. This is why today we get inspired by it, for honoring and reproducing it.
It is with pure as nature stones that we created this collection, with irregular shapes that resemble ice and curve lines to represent the change they suffer.
