November 2018 - PAULA PEREIRA

November 01, 2018

Paula Pereira is a legitimate “carioca” as they say in Brazil, as she was born in the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro. She has been living in São Paulo, the largest and most cosmopolitan city in Brazil, for the last five years.

Paula has a degree in architecture and marketing, and learned to knit ten years ago. Since then she has been dedicated to designing wearable and fun to knit garments and accessories. She is passionate about textures, shaping, and smart details in handmade knitwear.

Paula has multiple influences, having lived in Canada and in California where she dove deep into studies of Tibetan Buddhism and obtained her yoga teacher degree, and these experiences are reflected in her work.
