He recollects that this desire for natural inspiration led him to the creation of the Kesya Pull, one of PullCast’s best sellers and one of the most amazing pieces of the Earth Collection. According to Rui, “Kesya was the first piece that I’ve created and I used a piece of wood to make the mold that eventually produced the end product!”
After Kesya and the Earth Collection, Rui in collaboration with PullCast developed other Collections, like the Ocean or the Cosmopolitan Collections! The last one is inspired in a more urban style, but the first one, like the Earth Collections, draws inspiration in nature, namely in the Oceans.
Is within the Ocean Collection that we find Rui’s favourite piece: the Toile Pull. Inspired in the Coral Reefs, the Toile Pulls are glorious and can transport you instantly to the mysterious beauty of the coral reefs!
