Traveling changed my life, getting to know new places and different cultures made me realize that everything is possible and that not even the sky has limits.
My name is Ilan, Merav’s partner and father of Rumi, Libi and Eden
My name in Hebrew means young tree and from there my connection with nature began.
I was born in a small town, in the desert in southern Israel.
Life in Israel was accompanied by constant tension, so after my mandatory military service, at the age of twenty-two, I went on a world trip.
The path through this long journey introduced me to the world of tattoos that I continue to do to this day, 26 years later. There I can express my passion for art and love for the world of painting. I have been painting from a young age, I feel like I have been given a gift and I have always felt comfortable expressing myself. Painting, murals and graphic design for a publishing house were some of my first professions.
A year ago the whole family moved to Costitx to make our desire to live in the countryside come true after years of very intense life in Ibiza. We discovered Sa Llavor and we felt that we had come “home”.
Life in Mallorca has opened many doors for me and one of them is learning green building and permaculture. It allows me to develop this connection with nature and learn the use of natural and simple materials that are literally under our feet.
