My name is Charlotte Houman and I am a textile designer. For many years I have worked designing for different Danish textile companies while developing my artistic creation process.
I trained in Danmarks Design Skole in Copenhagen, and in 1991 I moved to Cuacos de Yuste, Extremadura, where I established my textile studio in a rural guesthouse.
Here I conceived the Extremerinas Project, together with my colleague Concha Salguero, based on the desire to revalue the transhumant merino wool of Extremadura’s wood pastures (Dehesa).
I am especially passionate about creation that encompasses ethics and aesthetics in its process. That is why the principles which underlie everything I do are sustainability, traceability, local production and respect.
Everything you will find here is the result of my commitment to the use of natural fabrics in a local, artisanal production process in which every step can be traced.
I firmly believe that there is a less harmful way of living, and that’s what I try to reflect in my brand.
