Colombia Prints is a young design studio founded by two well-known Colombian illustrators. In July 2017 Turcios and Nani decided to put their talents to use for the fashion industry. Turcios, who has garnered 84 awards, has a signature style of exceptional creativity. Nani, a caricaturist, feminist, and activist, boasts 18 years of experience in the textile profession. She’s also the author of the Magola comic strip series with 15 books rich in humour. Their combined artistic talents mix magic and realism in original designs, some winners of national awards.
Motifs with fantastic animals and floral prints with a tropical mood are the studio’s specialities. Turcios and Nani present over 170 designs each season. The prints are created by hand, no matter the technique – water colour, ink, or acrylic. Colombia Prints sells its designs in Spain, where the studio has an office, and in France, China, Portugal, and Colombia. Based on this international success, plans are underway to sell in Japan and Italy. Colombia Prints is also targeting the Arabian Peninsula countries.
