Ofelia & Antelmo

A course by Ofelia & Antelmo

Teacher Plus
Textile Art Studio

Ofelia & Antelmo is a project created by Gabriela Martínez—designer and textile artist—in 2017 that started out as a contemporary textile art proposal presented in two formats that go hand in hand: textile art and wearable art.

Textile art forms the starting point for Gabriela's process, which she uses to explore all her ideas for colors, textures, stitches, and effects. She then brings them to life in handmade garments with wear-resistant finishes and stitches. Her main motivation is for quality to prevail over quantity. She therefore creates durable pieces as a form of protest against the speed at which the world moves today.
