During one of our many travels, in a remote fisherman’s village where they were shining their soft and diffused light into the Italian evening: lamps made of recycled fishing nets.
So simple and at the same time so very beautiful and with so many different colours and shapes.
It brought back memories of the early seventies, when it became trendy to have at least one such lamp strategically placed in your living room. We couldn’t shake this idea, nor did we want to.
So we crafted our own versions; all handmade, all with the ElPelut quality signature. All made with love.
Los Enamorados in Ibiza are the first to put them on display. And we love how they did it.
But they would look even better in your own home, private and at ease. Exactly the way we fell in love with them in that old fisherman’s village. Have them shine your light even more brightly.
The adventure of the Afghan coats that Granny takes a trip launched back in the ‘60s has really inspired us. Even to the extent that we started to build further on the notion of the Granny part and that took us to crocheting.
From there we embarked on our latest addition: hand-made crocheted Granny-cardigans.
Full length, in a Spring and Summer edition and from the finest wool we could find. Thanks to our creatives we now have our first El Pelut collection and there is more to come. It is our aim to have artisans working on these Cardies from different countries, ranging from Turkey to Vietnam.
To help them create not only beautiful garments, but the next step towards their own independence as well.
The Granny trip has definitely turned into a ride. Come away with us!

And yet, when you looked beyond all the hair, there was something strangely appealing about the new inhabitants; they brought items and goods with them from all over the world. Jewels from Nepal, crocheted linen from Thailand, cloth from the Bedouin tribes to name a few. The Hippies would happily trade with others in the streets and small gatherings to fund their travels to other faraway places. And from those places they brought back more beautiful things. Pure, sincere treasures, with a certain rawness. Together they started small markets that became a success. Not only as a place to trade their goods, but also as a meeting point, a melting pot of cultures where stories were told, where artists showed their finest work and ideas were...
