Business created by co-founer Marianela Calvo, “Bona Fide” means Good Faith in latin, an expression which means that something is authentic, genuine and full of positive intentions. Marianela Calvo is not only Space Lab’s main designer but is also a new face in the accessory design world. She has experimented with fabrics and colors throughout this and last year, achieving a large collection of original and colorful necklaces.
