A design inspired by Frida Kahlo


Our love for mornings and good coffee mixed with a love poem gave as the result a poetic espresso cups collection.

Original version of the poem first. English follows.

 

terracotta espresso cups Mereces un amor que te quiera despeinada,
incluso con las razones que te levantan de prisa

y con todo y los demonios que no te dejan dormir.

Mereces un amor que te haga sentir segura,
que pueda comerse al mundo si camina de tu mano,
que sienta que tus abrazos van perfectos con su piel.

Mereces un amor que quiera bailar contigo,
que visite el paraíso cada vez que ve tus ojos
y que no se aburra nunca de leer tus expresiones.

Mereces un amor que te escuche cuando cantas,
que te apoye en tus ridículos,
que respete que eres libre,
que te acompañe en tu vuelo,
que no le asuste caer.

Mereces un amor que se lleve las mentiras,
que te traiga la ilusión,el café y la poesía.

 Frida Kahlo
 

 

 Frida

You deserve a lover who wants you dishevelled,
with everything and all the reasons that wake you up in a haste and the demons that won’t let you sleep.

You deserve a lover who makes you feel safe,
who can consume this whole world if he walks hand in hand with you,
someone who believes that his embraces are a perfect match with your skin.

You deserve a lover who wants to dance with you,
who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes
and never gets bored of reading your expressions.

You deserve a lover who listens when you sing, 
who supports you when you feel shame,
who respects your freedom, 
who flies with you, 
who isn’t afraid to fall.

You deserve a lover who takes away the lies
and brings you dreams, coffee, and poetry.

                                         Frida Kahlo
