MardeFe means "Sea of faith" in Spanish.
The combination between my name - Mariana, my mother tongue and my belief in the power of faith, gave birth to my business name.

Hi, my name is Mariana and I am an industrial designer and artist.
Ever since I can remember, I have always painted and created arts.
After graduating my industrial design studies in the Academy Bezalel, I have worked as an industrial designer in a private company in New York City. After living the big city life for a while, I decided to move to San Francisco - the city of spirituality and creativity. For me, that moment in my life indicated a change was coming in my perception as a professional designer. My desire to create art, and the experience of working in cooperation with large Chinese factories where employment conditions are so tough, made me make that change. I decided to focus on finding the balance between art and industrial design. Passionately, I was trying to build a new world for me, that included those two fascinating fields by creating small series of everyday products. I found the way to create my unique art and products while maintaining high quality at an affordable price, manufacturing it locally.
I believe good design should be available to all and inspire us daily.
