Teresa Olea

Teresa Olea is a brand born from the need to apply aesthetic criteria to as much facets as we can imagine.

An exhaustive research of the artistic part of a wide variety of objects, valuing specially, the quality of the elements and the craftsmanship of the production process, always with a personal and differential touch.

Architecture, interior design and footwear. The purity of the lines, the textures chosen and the color match, creates an homogeneity, making the brand recognizable, in uniqueness, quality and comfort.


We are a Spanish family, born and bred in Madrid. We are lovers and advocates of nature, art and good design. We are working on this project together because we believe in the future. We have done it bit by bit and enjoyed each minute of the process.

We have a simple but ambitious idea: to create a different type of backpack. Loved by those who have it and desired by those who don't know of it.

BALT backpacks are designed for natural, 100% made in Spain by free mind people who have personality and a touch of sophistication.
