MAZURCA Handmade is a Lisbon based brand passionate 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.
MAZURCA is very serious about ethical and sustainable buying, being part of the slow-fashion movement and working responsibility both socially and ecologically. We value locally produced raw material, mainly linen, and we work towards developing fully traceable products.
The fabrics used are produced in Portugal and have a natural origin. They are hand printed giving rise to different pieces mainly bags. The techniques used in the creation of the images and patterns are the block-printing of handcarved linoleum stamps and handmade stencils.
Each Mazurca piece is sewn and printed one by one, inspired by MAZURCA’s greatest passion: the natural world!
