Janaïna Milheiro creates high-end weaving and embroidery for fashion and home interiors. Her collections include unique feathered silks and laces, some pieces being one-off creations. As an artisan and textile designer, Janaïna Milheiro approaches her work with a diverse set of skills in embroidery, weaving, lace, printing, braiding, drawing and featherwork, all brought together with unexpected materials. Her ‘feather fabrics’ illustrate a marriage between thread, textiles and feathers. These surprising and delicate creations bring to life a unique graphic vision of feathers. The virtuosity of her artisanal silk weaving is enhanced by feathers applied to the weft by hand.
