Tíntica

Tíntica

In Aida’s attic, Tíntica was born. It is a place full of plants, roots, leaves, flowers, husks and fruits. The pots steam and the alchemy emerges, as a result wools are treated with love and patience.

Thanks to Aida’s work, knitting becomes a sensorial experience. Furthermore, she uses high-quality national wools to promote the Spanish wool industry.
