A new chapter of MAZURCA is starting this year.
We are now producing our own ink from metals, minerals, plants and more.
The way is still long, and failure is part of the process.
We are currently working with oak galls and we will tell you all about it!
MAZURCA is a Lisbon-based brand inspired by Nature.
Its creator and designer-maker, Sara, is a Biologist by training. In 2014 she decided to leave her laboratory studies and dedicated her time to learning as much as she could about textile production and arts.
As a part of the slow fashion movement, we at MAZURCA are very serious about ethical and sustainable buying, as well as working with social and ecological responsibility. For that reason, we value locally produced raw materials, mainly linen, and we work towards developing fully traceable products.
The fabrics used are produced in Portugal and have a natural origin. Different patterns, inspired by Nature, are hand-printed on the fabrics and materials used to make our products, such as bags and scarves. For the creation of the images and patterns used to block-print the materials, we hand-carve linoleum stamps and hand-made stencils.
Each of our pieces is sewn and printed one by one, inspired by MAZURCA’s greatest passion: the natural world!
