Christina Bussman Otte received her diploma as a fashion designer in Florence. After a period as a costume fitter and designer for film and theatre in Berlin, she moved with her family to the island of Mallorca where she started to manufacture unique bags, initially in leather, starting her own label in 2014. Over time she realized the need for more sustainably produced bags and alternatives for vegans. She has developed a range of bags made from pineapple fibres to address that need.
