Marta, Fauna y Flora
Marta, together with Oscar, owns the Fauna and Flora jewelry brand.
We arrived one morning at his magical house / workshop in La Garrotxa. Surrounded by mountains, in one of the most beautiful and green areas of Catalonia, from where they design and produce their pieces.
Personally, I have followed Fauna y Flora from before beginning New Moscada. They are one of the pioneers in creating a small brand with values and essence where one of its priorities is to create a more human world through its work.
Marta is a Women we love for her inspiring values in the enterprising and conciliatory world as a mother, among many other things …
We spent one morning with Marta, a reference for us, a woman of interest, a fighter, active, feminine and purely attractive.

Tell us a little more about what you do …
In 2011, I created my brand, Fauna y Flora, and since then I have been dedicating myself to designing costume jewelery and jewelery for our brand, bringing our project day to day and also thinking and preparing for the future . We are a small family business and we are dedicated to designing and producing, in a local and sustainable way, collections of gems inspired by nature where the pieces tell small stories to help us connect with ourselves and our natural surroundings.
What is your motivation every day?
I am very perfectionist and very perseverant, so I am very motivated by the idea of working to improve every day. Improve the quality of my work, my business, my life and myself in the most personal area.
What is the success for you? Do you think you got it?
I see success in many small things throughout the day: when I look up the computer and see the green of the mountains, when I eat a omelette made with the eggs of our chickens, when my son shows me the moon and it says to me that it is very beautiful … I try to find success in these simple and everyday things that have been able to succeed at the bottom thanks to the work I have been doing and the decisions that I have taken. Awareness of this makes me feel a person deeply successful and grateful.
There are many people who have a great ambition to follow their dreams, but do not know how and where to start. What would be your advice for someone with these questions?
I would recommend that you start by deeply knowing who you are and exploring yourself, your emotions and your self-knowledge and from there, you would be building and raising your project.
What town / city do you live?
Four years ago we left the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona to come and live in a small village with little more than 1,000 habitats in the Garrotxa looking to build our family in a more natural and friendly environment.
Creator, entrepreneur, mother …
‘Death with dignity’ or any of the ‘Carrie and Lowell’ album by Sufjan Stevens, is my record and that of my son.

How is one day in your life?
At home we early have breakfast all family together. After leaving Tom at school, we try to go for a walk with the dogs. At 9 we are already working in the workshop until 5 pm. We pick up the child and try to make our afternoon be for him, in winter we often spend all afternoon at home near the fireplace but in summer we try to go to Cap de Creus to see the sunset and swim in a lost creek. We try to enjoy what each season of the year offers us.
What role does clothing play in your day to day?
I think clothing is another form of expression, it helps us to convey our mood, our style and also our values. And in the same way help us also connect with a desired mood or mental state.
