The Project

Refresco is a Caribbean art and design project based in Barcelona. We work hand in hand with artisans from the Dominican Republic and Haiti with whom we explore different processes and materials to mix their traditional techniques and new ideas. Aside from importing a wide selection of pieces, we create our own designs inspired by the cultural essence of these countries. We promote fair trade as way of contributing to their impoverished communities. Our goal is to bring attention to the dignity and potential of manual labor by revitalizing Caribbean craft and inserting it in new markets.
