Belen Senra is the creative mind behind the Ranran Design project. A textile studio that focuses its efforts mainly on the creation of wall art using the macramé technique and hand weaving. Ranran Design started out in 2012 when macramé and hand weaving weren’t as popular as today, which allowed Belen to define her own style and not be influenced by anyone.
Belen loves finding the right balance between bright and earthy shades. Using this as a starting point, she creates a wide range of tapestries which come in various shapes and sizes. Jute, raw cotton, organic hemp, silk and fabrics embroidered by hand are just some of her favourite materials. Inspired by her trips and tropical nature, Belen lives in Bali 6 months out of the year. Her wall arts also show what’s the most important thing to her: eco-sustainability and supporting small local companies.
Another important feature of Belen’s style comes from her educational background. After graduating in Interior Design, she got into fashion and jewellery. This is a crucial incentive that leads her to enlarge and achieve continuously changing colour and shape combinations. By flicking through related magazines and going to local markets in the places where she’s visiting, Belen arouses her desire to discover new creative expressions.
Belen has made a wall art for us by trying out our Giant yarn. The piece has been made using entirely the macramé technique and has been added to the Grafiti collection by Belen. Its foaminess, mainly from the large fringes and the pastel colours combined with the white, give the wall art a warm and cozy look. Ideal for any room in the house.
