Norma of Porto


Norma of Porto

Designed and handmade in Porto, Portugal by Norma, a talented eco-conscious designer who studied product design, completed a Master’s degree at Elisava in Barcelona and a Masters in Set Design at IED in Madrid, and worked in design studios in both Spain and Los Angeles.

Norma’s education coupled with her work experience informed her decision to steer away from industrial design and focus on a more manual and personalized approach to her creations. Recognizing the attention she has always placed on sustainability in both her personal and professional life, she decided to focus on eco-design and create beautifully handmade products in a sustainable way..

Each of her original pieces is handmade from 100% recycled textile waste. She uses glue to hold the textile together in the shape of her choice and a water based ecological varnish.
