``I find inspiration in Nature and in the experiences that life brings me. I try to use materials that originate in some natural way and give them a new life and usefulness. I like the neutral tones``.
Marta Barros TEX MB


TEX MB is a Portuguese brand of handicraft works for interior design and a project that I created in November 2016, after 9 years of working as a television producer.


We make exclusive wallhangings using the macrame ancient technique – wich consists of interweaving threads through knots. Each piece is unique and carries the marks of a work done entirely by hand. It implies a lot of involvement, and that’s why the brand couldn’t have another name than mine.

''We commissioned Marta to create a bespoke piece of woven art for one of our clients Portuguese limited edition collection launches. Not only was Marta super professional, amazing communication and super talented at what she does but she went over and beyond for us and the client to ensure we were happy with the finished piece. She also joined us at the exclusive preview event in London where she showcased her piece of work and told our guests all about the process and inspiration behind it.
Everyone on the evening praised Marta for the amazing piece she had created. On behalf of the client and I - thank you Marta, you were amazing!''

All her professionalism, such as meeting deadlines, the rigor with which she makes the macramés and the extreme attention to detail means that all the work delivered to us has gone excellently and our clients have always been very satisfied.
We even have clients who continue to ask for custom-made pieces from Marta, even after our projects are completed. We would like to thank you for all your hard work and wish you all the best! :)``

``We’ve followed Marta’s work since its early days, so when we decided to design and build a signature metal staircase for our coworking space in the historic landmark Rossio Train Station in Lisbon, we immediately sought Marta to give it a soft, warm, organic and artisanal touch.
We couldn’t be happier with the end result and with Marta’s impeccable professionalism, ability to incorporate feedback, artistry and dedication to her craft. We’re counting the days until our next creative collab.``

This piece came about as a result of a commission from an esteemed client, who one day surprised me with two antique beds. I, ignoring all the work that was to come, soon fell in love with them and accepted the challenge.
