Paper flowers and paper goods for a dinner during the Cannes Festival. The grandmas worked paper in a 3D way to make unique centrepieces that captured beauty and elegance.
Bags, bandanas and pins to celebrate music and the village were the festival happened. These pieces were made with the community during a residency of 6 months in which grandmas came once a month, to brainstorm, make and show the elderly people and children from the village how to produce their own merchandise.
Unique invitations, inspired in the traditional Portuguese “lovers handkerchieves”. These traditional pieces were typical clothing accessories and were used or offered by young single women who would embroider sweet messages to their boyfriends who were sent off to sea or war to the former colonies. The grandmas, inspired by love, silkscreened, hand painted and embroidered this invitation.
The downtown of Coimbra traditional commerce wanted a strong image that would linked the local community, the shops, the costumers and the historical little streets of it’s city. So, the grandmas were invited by a local student organisation Há Baixa, to develop and work with university students, shop owners and residents to create a piece that would represent local commerce and all of the bonds it creates with people and territory.
