Vanessa Barragão’s work is characterized by her captivating environments of coral reefs, cleverly combining craft and recycled materials into unique and luxurious sculptural carpets and tapestries for floors and walls.

She developed her first wool yarn collection and tapestries through an ecological artisanal process. Currently, she is based in Porto, where the nation’s textile industry core is located and divides her time between collaborating as a textile designer for an artisanal rugs factory and running her studio.

Chemicals are used,in the process especially when it comes to the fibers treatment and dying. All the machinery used requires tons of energy while producing a lot of waste and disposable trash.

She believes in an upcycling effort towards the right way to try to fight against this kind of negative mindset described above. All the materials used come from the deadstock of several local factories which is first cleaned and then selected to recycle and reuse in her projects. Her production is completely artisanal and handmade by using ancestral techniques, like latch hook, felt, knitting, macrame, and crochet, to create her artworks.
