Designer Profile

Arrels Barcelona is the dream come true of two cousins, Javier & Pepe Llaudet, passionate with the firm determination of unearthing the textile roots of his grandparents and pay tribute to the Mediterranean lifestyle. One day, they decided to take a leap of faith and…, today they sell swim shorts.

Arrels Barcelona is warmth and color. Joy, relaxation, vitality. In one word, it’s Summer. Arrels Barcelona is art in motion, featuring the artistic creativity of renowned illustrators such as Jean Jullien, Malika Favre, and Catalina Estrada. Why should art be housed in cold galleries when it can be exhibited outdoors, enjoying the sun and the beach? 

Summer is really much more than a season: it’s a state of mind.
