The artwork Cotufa symbolizes the versatile, the overlooked and yet, also something quite familiar. The scent of popcorn invokes happiness, warmth and a sense of innocence.
Like many things that go unnoticed, the talents of the corn are widely disregarded. (Yup - we’re talking about corn.) An ingredient that is universally used and has been given little tribute to everything it has to offer.
Cotufa gives praise to all those hidden gifts of corn.

Corn based recycled polylactic acid + mixed media

The brand: Born from the primitive and inherent need of all human beings to possess something treasured that we instinctively want to protect and therefore refuse to share. Mionopeto represents the feeling of ownership and the desire to be surrounded by things that captivate you, that you admire and that you’re proud to have.
“Mío, no presto."
A story that began with a boy who had his toy cars, and denied everyone else from playing with them.
He simply stated: “mionopeto."
Colorín colorado, this version of the story has come to and end. Now it’s time for you to make yours.
With your own mionopeto.
* Spoiler alert: the boy from the story is Fede's dad.
