Rosa Rodriguez obtained degree in Fashion Design at the School of EATM in Barcelona (2001). In the this year she begins using textile as a means to develop her interventions in natural environments. With time, her textiles appear transformed, as skin or crust, result of their interaction with the inhabited environment.

The development of this line, brought her to Peru where she worked at the Museum Sitio Huaca Pucllana, in the department of Textile Conservation and Restoration, in parallel with archaeological projects such as mummy unwrapping. With this work, she got expertise about the funerary rituals of pre-Colombian cultures. Following this experience, she moved to Mexico and closely linked to the traditions of the Original Peoples Americans.

Back in Barcelona joined the Escola Massana, post-graduating in Textile Art, where she was awarded with the Applied Arts Prize.

Nowadays, combines her artistic work with Research and Development of new technologies integrated in textiles at Eurecat Catalunya Technological Centre.
