A BIT OF HISTORY
INSTINTO was born in Barcelona in the 80's, from the collaboration of friends and colleagues Cris, Dolors and Elsa. At first we focused exclusively on artisanal serigraphy, swaging all kinds of accessories; stockings, gloves, swimsuits, pajamas...
After a few years filled with experimentation, shows and travels, we opened up shops in Sitges, Barcelona and Bilbao, making a step forward and producing our first clothing lines, swaging fabrics and looking for textures with a natural and original feel.
At the moment INSTINTO composed of two shops, a workshop and a team of 15 women that passsionately design, produce and sell fashion that has it's own style but that is also fresh, comfortable, colorful and for every woman out there.
Even though we have a long history, we have always wanted to maintain the format of a small business, to keep being close to our surroundings and our customers.
We believe that the textile industry around us, without which we wouldn't have been able to start our adventure, deserves to be preserved. Sadly, we have seen it dwindle in the last few years. It's with this concern in mind that our entire production process (fabric design, swaging, sewing...) happens in Barcelona and it's surroundings.
Our clothing line has always been designed and produced at our studio/workshop in Gràcia (Barcelona), which gives it the local flair that distinguishes our style.
