In the paradise home of Manuela Sosa, the creator of Gang and the Wool, we are welcomed by a rapture of floral scents, shimmering colours and hazy spring sunshine. Nestled in the Barcelona hilltops, this sixties house has become the creative lair of Gang and the Wool, Manuela’s floral brand which specialises in weddings. In a sunny corner of her garden, she has installed her workshop under a canopy of pine trees overlooking the house. With a true love for nature, this Uruguayan florist, lives and breathes it into her creations. Her wild and astonishingly beautiful bouquets are amalgamations of fresh or dried flowers and sometimes even objects that she’s gathered over time. Her philosophy synthesises freedom and creativity, and is one that extends well beyond her work. This lady radiates life and character, and our inspiring conversation with her is exactly the type of encounter we love.
