Those who know Brazil can imagine how big and rich it is in cultural diversity. Land of creative and receptive people and also a place where an infinite variety of raw materials can be found, which makes Brazil a country with a large number of artists often unknown.
I was at a craft fair in São Paulo and had the pleasure of knowing the work of a designer who was so close but at the same time so far, after all Brazil is really a big country. Maqueson Pereira lives in Acre and his work is to show the exuberance of the Amazon forest with the most beautiful in flora, faunas and rivers.
The Marchetaria do Acre (Marquetry of Acre), the name given to the work of Maqueson, is the art of applying trimmed wood or ivory and brass pieces into carpentry objects forming designs of the most varied types. This technique was very common in 3,000 BC.
Throughout his career Maqueson has made countless pieces of home decoration but now he is also conquering the fashion market with his clutches made from discarded woods of trees that have already been felled using the marquetry technique.
Maqueson has fashionistas fans inside and outside of Brazil and for those who liked his work it is worth clicking the link to check it out! http://www.maquesonmarchetaria.com/index.php?march=nav/home
