On the Road With… Lucía Valdés

In People by Ali MadrazoLeave a Comment

Lucía is a logotherapist psychologist and founder of one of our favorite Mexican brands: Alma de Sal. She is deeply passionate about her roots and is very curious and addicted to emotion, which is probably where the essence and creative force of the brand comes from. In Alma de Sal they design linen clothing, swimwear for men and women and beach accessories that are irresistible, original, comfortable and of great quality.
