Gabriela Martínez Ortiz, is a designer, and textile artist, the creator of Ofelia & Antelmo, a textile art project that studies hand embroidery. Ofelia represents community, the work of a cooperative of women to make handmade garments designed to be one-size-fits-all, reversible, and timeless. Antelmo represents Gabriela’s personal creative journey as the clothes become canvases where she explores techniques, supports, fabrics, textures and colours. A self-taught embroiderer since 2014, her work is governed by the philosophy of the Slow Movement, a cultural revolution that aims to calm human activities, a reaction against speed by valuing enjoyment and savouring life. Ofelia and Antelmo is more than a brand, a lifestyle that invites slower living.
