Raúl Velloso

The Galician native Raúl Velloso began painting in Barcelona. It was there where he attracted the attention of the famous artist Antoni Tàpies while selling paintings on the street. The compelling creations of Velloso were too good to resist for the Catalan artist, who became his mentor right away and was his link to the art of bullfighting.

However, his attraction to bullfighting has been part of his life since he was a kid, through his father and grandmother. That’s maybe the reason why as an adult he has understood exactly how to capture the emotion that can be felt in the plaza and the facial expression Manolete had every time he stepped into the arena.

His paintings jump from the canvas to the shoes to create unique pieces of art which pay tribute to one of the most well-known trademarks of Spain.

Sara Navarro

Sara Navarro is more than prepared to engage in the footwear industry. It’s in her genes. She is the third generation of an artisan shoemaker family. But if it wasn’t enough she studied Fashion Design, specializing in shoe styling at Ars Sutoria and Domus Acadamy, Milán.

After working in the family business, she established ‘Ene Woods’ in 1997 along with her brother Eduardo. Since then, she has won several awards due to her talent and professional record. Nowadays she runs two brands: ‘Sara Navarro’ and ‘Sarah World’.

This one, based on her commitment to the environment and a responsible consumption, is the perfect framework for her collaboration with the artist Raúl Velloso.
