Brazil-born, UK based textile designer Helga Matos creates exquisite woven textiles for interior spaces and products using a variety of recycled materials.
Helga Matos will be exhibiting with Designersblock at Milan Design Week 2013 showcasing her new collection of fabrics, wall hangings and screens inspired by the crafts of the Amazon rainforest.
With a contemporary and experimental approach to weaving, Helga explores the possibilities of materials that are no longer used for its intended purposed to create highly decorative woven textiles. As well as recycled materials, Helga uses high quality wool, silk and cotton in her home fabric collections of bold geometric patterns.
“ I’m constantly looking for anything I can put through the loom and bits of things that I can make interesting patterns with. I’m mainly drawn to materials that have a sense of repetition attached to them, for example parts of machinery or byproducts from manufacturing.”
