After a degree in Art History and starting my own flower designing company, I decided on following a dream and creating an accessories brand, named after my mothers childhood nickname, Babash. The idea was to create designs that being easy to wear, would be different… in so much as they would be born from pieces collected here and there, from hand woven indigenous materials to designer fabrics, from suede and leather craftsmanship flirting with traditional Portuguese passementerie to stones in vibrant colors and different shapes set off as pieces of jewelry in themselves. Everything could be an inspiration as my siblings and I soon learnt growing up in different parts of the world.
Bags and Belts aimed at women with an Independent Spirit, Style and Attitude! Each piece has its own feel and unique character…
