Colombian designer Felipe Eusse launched Nobsas on the market, two innovative proposals created at the Experimento Victoria 2012, a project in which Victoria footwear discovers the creative processes of 12 former alumni of the Master of European Design Labs 2010.
When it came time to create these shoes, Eusse had in mind two typical articles of clothing in Colombia: a ruana, an artisan sheep wool material, and the traditional thin, fine cotton poncho. Both are ideal for the diversity of climates existing in the same territory.
On the one hand, the fall/winter Nobsas are based on the ruana. Made of thick, raw wool in various grey tones, they are perfect for protection against low temperatures. On the other hand, the spring/summer Nobsas, inspired by the poncho, are white or a whitish color with colored thread detail (for example, red and blue threads). Ideal for hot temperatures.
This way, Eusse reinterprets the country’s identity with strong climatic differences, bringing artisan textile products from Colombia to the present time with the Nobsas, in a more universal way.
Trained as an industrial designer, Eusse has his own studio, EUSSE DESIGN STUDIO. His international vision and access to the Master of European Design Labs research laboratory at the IED Madrid in 2010 have increased his passion for design and trends.
