Deporinter is the enterprise that organizes the “Ruta del Sol” – Vuelta Ciclista a Andalucía, This year they believed in us once again to dress up the leading racers from each stage.
Two years ago we had the same project but it was linked to Nazari art. An artistic expression from the south of Africa witch is known to constitute the Hispano-Muslim art witch is characteristic of its geometric and vegetable engravings.
Leaving behind the tartessian star and the olive branch (some of the inspiration for the 2021 designs), this year we chose as protagonist the tile. One of the numerous art traditions in Andalucía that have been present through its history. It all started in the nazarí, period somewhere around the XII to XIV century, when the art bases that keep evolving now where seted. The tile is the best way to pay visual tribute to the heritage and history of Andalucía.
