Maria Descalça is a brand created by Marisa Almeida.
The concept is to recycle raw materials (plastic bags) at the end of its useful life and in an innovative way, combining the traditional with the modern, transforming each piece into a unique product.
The lightness of the material and the love with which each piece is made gives the shine it deserves. Like the women in the past – who spent many hours in the haystacks and sheds in the cold, stepping on the pedals to create the blankets and rugs with damaged fabrics and giving life to new pieces – also Maria Descalça wanted to create this magic. Basically, these women used to recycle raw materials. Only that the concept of "recycle" was not as fashionable as it is today.
