Nomada, wool km 0 made in Spain, shown on the catwalk at Madrid Fashion Week in the collection by María Lafuente

The last edition of Madrid Fashion Week was a very special event for Katia, due to the designer María Lafuente presenting her collection Âme which featured Nomada wool as an important protagonist.
