Be TIMELESS ...
There are two distinctive tendencies in the design world these days.
A less ethical "fast fashion", where money other than passion drives creativity while suppressing our consciousness and leading to void consumerism, the exploitation of workers and the shattering of our planet.
And then, there is a slower pace movement, like a conscious philosophy, where people have greater appreciation for quality, admire the traditional ways of production and treasure the environment while dignifying the work of who's behind the final product.
We felt the need to slow down and cherish the little things. Let us show you how by unveiling the story and the meaning behind each product.
It's a fascinating path through creative fabrics made of natural fibers, designed by a portuguese team and materialized by our friends in India, Portugal and Nepal.
Dare to feel the perfect imperfections of the hand crafted textiles and absorb the colorful patterns enhanced with delicate embroideries.
This is our philosophy, our identity, our traces.
TIMELESS... takes time
We aim for transparency in the production process and the creation of timeless collections.
Our journey takes us to small communities in Portugal, India and Nepal, where we merge into fascinating cultures and people, Masters of ancient textile techniques.
The respect for fair trade standards should guide the work of all designers.
So, we make sure that a positive impact towards a more sustainable fashion industry is woven in every step of our process.
TIMELESS... creates magic
Multicultural influences stimulate our creativity and feed our desire to be different and exclusive.
By bringing together the most traditional and technologically advanced ways of printing and dying textiles, we guarantee the high quality of our fabrics while creating magic...
... magic that can be sensed in the delicate textures of the textiles, the fresh touch of the natural fibers, the smooth vibrancy of the colours and the excellency of the details.
TIMELESS... is Teresa Martins.
The creative Director.
A melting pot of art and science, reason and emotion, knowledge and intuition that passionately guides our design team.
The mix and matching of colours and patterns is one of her gifts and supports her vision of creating versatile silhouettes and pure shapes that invite the body to breathe and move freely.
Pieces that embrace the feminine figure and transcend social constraints of size.
An odd to the " Freedom of Being".
India has a culture of textiles, silks and brocades which are very difficult to find elsewhere. In the Spring of 2005 TMcollection, now Traces of me, was born.
I like to transform, I like to pick up something that no one finds interesting and transform it into something exceptional.
