The graphic approach to Laia's work feeds from classical iconography to generate a completely personal discourse, with Byzantine, Greco-Roman and Japanese reminiscences, and she creates new symbolic discourse linked to her life experiences, where the voice and visibility of women are the center of attention and reflection.


Founded in Spain in 1846, LOEWE is one of the world’s major luxury houses. Since 2013, under creative director Jonathan Anderson, the brand has started a new chapter as a house focused on craft and culture, evidenced through an intellectual yet playful approach to fashion, the bold and vibrant Spanish lifestyle and unmatched expertise in leather.  


LOEWE has a rich legacy of craftsmanship dating back to its beginnings as a collective workshop, and has long valued artisanal techniques in its approach to design and manufacture. These core values are reflected in the brand’s belief in the importance of craft in today’s culture and its commitment to supporting contemporary art, craft and culture around the world.


LOEWE Weaves explores the act of weaving as both a decorative craft and way to build structure. Presenting a series of Galician chestnut roasters created by master potter Antonio Pereira., the handmade hole-punched clay pots feature experimental weaving techniques by artists: Arko Asako from Japan, Min Chen from China and Laia Arqueros from Spain.
