To dye for
Maria João creates her own prints on her own fabrics in the Tinturaria' or traditional 'dyer's studio', in Portuguese.
In her little space by the river, she prints and dyes fabrics, by hand, with traditional techniques. It is an old and almost extinguished art, since today everything is ruled by big machines and textile industries. These are exclusive and unique pieces done with 3 techniques - dyeing, block-printing and embroidery - and can be used as bed covers or wall hanging. A perfect juxtaposition to contemporary, sleek furnishings.
