The history of Oscar H. Grand dates back to the year 2001. After working in a textile factory and making small collections for different shops, he decided to open his own shop with the intention of doing something very special and personal with their product, and giving themselves complete creative freedom in the development of their work. In 2006, he opened his shop in the Born district, which has, to this day, been the base for my work. In this space, the hand-crafted pieces created here can be appreciated in person.
