ABOUT OUR MATERIALS

MAZURCA’s favorite materials is Linen, Jute and Cotton.

All the fabrics we use are produced in Portugal and in the case of our home-made linen we can fully trace, and closely follow its production from seed to cloth (cradle to cradle).

As for the semi-industrial linen, jute and cotton canvas, they are weaved in Portugal by a small company that recovered old, traditional looms and works with traditional methods: virgin yarns with strong twist and without any chemical treatment to weave.

Our project helps to preserve the traditional handicraft of linen production in Portugal. This tradition is almost lost in our country and very few families still produce it with high quality, from seed to cloth. As this is a matter that is really close to our hearts, we are also involved in a linen production recovery project in Portugal.
