Pascale met Cristina of Pendular Pocket in Barcelona while shopping for her bridal gown. Cristina and Pascale instantly connected and when it came to light that Cristina makes this beautiful line of handmade bags, there was no question that we’d be working with her.
Starting her bag designs in 2003, Cristina always saw bags as more than bags, which inspires her conceptual approach to the designs. Feeling that her real expertise is in craftsmanship, Cristina spends a good deal of time and effort with every single piece she makes. The hard work is apparent in her final products and she says that she takes a great deal of enjoyment from immersing herself in what she does.
In 2015, Cristina moved from Spain to Berlin, Germany where she is learning German and getting daily inspiration for her collection.
Cristina takes the skill of abstract, freehand painting to what she,
and many women love best, their handbag. It's hard to take eyes off these beauties!
