Custo – Barcelona
Custo Barcelona was founded by two brothers, Custo and David Dalmau in the early 80’s after they completed a round the world trip to many different countries. Their journey allowed them to discover not only new landscapes but also the most varied of artistic, cultural and philosophical expressions.
