ATELIER KARAKA IS A CREATIVE STUDIO SPECIALIZED IN ILLUSTRATION, BRANDING AND SURFACE PATTERN DESIGN

Atelier Karaka was created by the designer Marta Afonso, as a place to reconcile her passion for illustration, patterns and fabrics. Since her graduation in Textile Design and Communication Design, Marta has collaborated with both Portuguese and international enterprises in editorials, branding, packaging, decor, fashion and advertising.

Surface Pattern Design

We create original patterns with countless uses, such as pieces of clothing, textiles for the home, packaging, stationery, digital campaigns, visual identity, etc.

Handprinted Textiles

We resort to different techniques of manual printing (block-printing, stamping, stencilling, etc.) throughout the creative process, also creating limited editions of handprinted pieces.

WHAT WE BELIEVE IN

Colaborative Vision

We believe that sharing ideas and knowledge is the basis for personal growth and, consequently, the enhancement of the projects we develop. We love to work as a team, so if you think you are amazing in what you do and if you'd like to collaborate with us, send us an e-mail.

Ecology and Sustainability

Whenever possible, we prefer using locally produced raw materials and we resort to environmentally friendly processes. If you share these concerns and have materials or services that could be of interest to us, send us an e-mail as we would love to have you as a partner.

Craftsmanship

The craftsmanship is a constant part of our creative process and, if possible, we try to extend it to the results of the projects themselves. If you are also a fan of ``handmade``, show us what you have made with your own hands.

WE ARE PROUD TO WORK WITH
