"In a time characterised by economies of scale and mass produced clothing and accessories, it is not very common to find hand made pieces that one could associate with the nostalgic art of threading. Maria José Garcia is the heart and soul behind the Spanish brand 'Absenta Accessories'.

One may easily see that her work is deeply inspired by the past and the union with nature. Her crochet threads are like spells meant to embellish those who want to dress for ceremony and ritual. Her work is evidently inspired by the old ways, by the archetypical priestess who fills her life with solemnity and reverence for what is wild and free.

With needle and thread Maria José preserves an old tradition and gives us subtle a messages. Her work whispers with the tongue of an old wisdom."
