Overalls, sleeping bags, towels, bags for toys, wraps for sandwiches… Finding all the ‘essential’ children’s accoutrements these days can actually be quite fun if you go for an entire co-ordinated set of goodies. Such sets are just one of the specialities at Vernita, a workshop, studio and shop created by three designers who bring a touch of originality to their kids’ products. The limited-edition ranges they design are made by an association in the neighbourhood of the Raval that helps people at risk of social exclusion; the rest of their pieces – and commissioned projects – are created in their new space in Poblenou. They’ve kept the ceiling mirrors that were put up by one of the premises’ previous occupants, a shoe shop called Julia, and the collection of colourful trousers from Ebaluh, who also once had a shop there. As well as their own items, Vernita stocks various other small-scale brands – the cuddly creatures from Pipiripops, the illustrated T-shirts by Thiagatz, Japanese-inspired jewellery by Lumaia, and the illustrated diary from Editorial Mediterrània.
