“I started making accessories in my teens when the psychedelic movement arrived in Portugal. I just wanted to have my own personalised pieces. Not so long after, people started to ask me to design and create pieces for them as well. From then on I started to develop collections for other brands, selling in select shops around Lisbon, creative markets and so on. One day I stopped making accessories and found inspiration in designing clothing.
I stopped designing accessories for almost 10 years. I wanted to try something different to grow and learn new things.
In 2013, after living abroad for a few years, I decided to start my own brand of clothing and jewellery, handmade and one size fits all.
My pieces are all about exploring new materials and finding new shapes. It’s a very personal process.” (Filipa Malho)
