In 1965, Juan Martínez Villacañas "Tito", a 25 year-old coming from a family with a long tradition in pottery making, had to choose between continuing the craft he had learned and exercised since childhood or abandoning his way of making things in favor to new, less functional materials. Fortunately, ignoring the songs of the sirens that tempted him to change towards technological techniques, Tito decided to stay in his workshop and restore and maintain the best of the Iberian pottery traditions.

8ttagoni is a project by Italian designer Daniela Corcio. The collections are based on regular octagonal patterns - an idea that came about after artist Ivan Pavlov asked Daniela to create items that would reflect the aesthetics of his Soisong project. Otto Ottagoni (eight octagons) takes its name from the shape of Soisong’s records. Using abstract trans-culturalism for a new dimension, the shapes of the garments offer a universal look that brings together sound and shape. The octagon becomes a symbol of renewal and a hope to create balance between emotion and passion. This sense of symmetrical unity and clarity is manifested by the use of black and white and the unisex designs. 8ttagoni's timeless collection is composed of eight black and white styles in one size only, customizing some styles and creating new pieces and limited editions. Additional fabrics, colours and prints on demand.
