Materia Rica

Materia Rica was founded in 2014 by Marta and Joan a Spanish couple who at the time where living in London.

Marta would draw illustrations in her spare time of peculiar characters, and Joan worked for a laser cutting company at the time. This is when they started transforming Marta’s illustrations into laser cut wooden jewellery.

They slowly started to build up a collection and sold them at local East London markets, which gave them the encouragement to take the next step and evolve Materia Rica into a brand which now sells to small independent shops and museums worldwide. 

The growth of their business has allowed them to collaborate with freelance illustrators to create unique fun jewellery collections.
