About Dolores Luque Ferrández
Where do you live? I’m from Formentera but I live in Palma since 1998.
How would you describe yourself with five words? Two are enough, serene and dreamy.

From Banking to selling beautiful Products
What have you studied or worked as before? I have a degree in business management and marketing and worked for ten years in banking.
How and when did your career as an entrepreneur begin? When my twins were born I stopped working at the bank and two years later, after having dedicated all my time to them, I decided it was my time. I had been thinking about creating an online shop for years. I found a great team to design and programme the web and within six months I launched it.
What do you love most about your work? Finding products that excite me. If I see them and my heart beats faster I don’t stop until I get them for my store. I also like the dynamic of social networks, especially Instagram.

How would you describe the style of Formentera Aguamarina? Very carefree, summery and mostly with natural fabrics and materials.
Can you tell us more about your current projects? I’m still growing, doing what I like and learning by making mistakes. So I don’t ask for more than staying as I am.
