Meals, aperitifs and afternoon snacks outdoors are always a good way of making the transition into the new season smoother.

We begin the new season feeling melancholic after leaving summer behind, when we shared great moments with family and friends. However, those great moments don’t have to end, we can carry on enjoying them in special places surrounded by nature.

In this photo, Vogue recreates a perfect place to have an afternoon snack in the countryside, where we find one of our handwoven, cherry red, linen pillows, with decorative stitches on the cross direction, making it a unique piece.

ÁBBATTE supports and encourages the revival of the textile tradition in la Sierra de Guadarrama and helps to conserve the heritage of the area as well as preserving techniques and ancient trades.

Going for a picnic is, undoubtedly, a way of enjoying nature, the most precious asset we have.

The perfect dream for ÁBBATTE people is to live a simpler life, integrated with nature.  Many years ago, most people left the forests and the countryside in order to live in cities and it is now that the need to regain that natural connection with our surroundings is emerging. We often come across people who are looking for that little place where they can find their inner selves and inner peace.

One of the main objectives at ÁBBATTE is to help preserve and promote part of the Segovian textile tradition at the Cistercian monastery of Santa María de la Sierra, where the age-old trade of hand-weaving is still carried out.

Local weavers who are trained in hand-weaving participate with the brand, which helps the local economy, producing a contemporary vision of craft.

They create a tribute to nature.
