About the Artisans

Matilde makes these one-of-a-kind home decor pieces using vintage linen cereal sacks in her town Miranda do Douro, on the northeastern border of Portugal with Spain. Matilde is 85 years old and started weaving at the age of 15. Throughout her life she weaved hundreds of cereal bags, bed covers, pillows, and saddle bags. Traditionally, most of the cereal sacks were woven in the natural color of the fibers (white and gray), but the bags found in Trás-os-Montes are full of bold colors, making them unique when compared to bags woven in other regions of Portugal, or even the world.
