About – Desvalido


From selling my very first pair of French knickers at a local market in December 2013, to moving into our first studio & hiring our first employees in 2020 (handmade business & job creation!? Love that for us), Desvalido is now a few lovely people working out of 4 rooms above a mechanic, in sunny Newcastle Australia!
