Hand embroidery on fabric
40 x 40cm

"This piece is influenced by the traditional Madeira Island embroidery and the memory of my grandmother. Her job, as many older and uneducated women around the island, was to embroidering for big specialized companies that pay them badly for very high-quality pieces than later were sold for a huge profit. This collection is a tribute to all the women that never had opportunities or choices and it’s a storytelling of my childhood and culture that, as in several more, still finds tough acknowledging the value and rights of women and the challenge of being one. "
