Oma Project by Nail Mani
I sat down (virtually) with Nail Mani, the owner of Oma Project here in Mallorca. Like me, Nail has a vested interest in artisans. Her concept space, OMA Project, hosts a myriad of products from artisans and designers from around the world. You can also engage Nail for her incredible interior and styling services. I went into her store for the first time recently and I didn't want to leave. I also bought an incredible white ceramic vase she had sourced from Tunisia (featured at the end). My boyfriend also loved the vase, rare occasion from the things I bring home, score!
