Weaving tradition with innovation

  • • Luisa and Óscar create colourful textiles on traditional looms
  • • They make contemporary fashion and interior design accessories
  • • Their products combine natural fibres and recycled materials

Luisa Estévez and Óscar Montero started weaving on wooden handlooms in 1986. Thanks to a scholarship, they learned this craft from master weavers and made it the axis of their lives. In 2004 they created their brand, Belategui Regueiro, using their mothers’ surnames. It was a tribute to them, and to all the women of Galicia, who have left their mark on this trade. Today, they make fashion and interior design accessories such as shawls, foulards, bags, blankets, curtains and tablecloths, as well as more artistic pieces such as tapestries and textile sculptures. Made from fibres such as linen, alpaca, silk and bamboo – sometimes combined with recycled materials such as neoprene from wetsuits, rubber bicycle shells or reused leather – they are ecological pieces that everyone wants to wear or simply show off.
