About the artist:

Rita Martins Pereira is a Portuguese textile and fashion designer based in Lisbon. Cities and the landscapes worldwide are the textile artist’s inspiration. She weaves memories of urban life, green and rugged mountains, and sunny shores into patterns that reflect human creativity and the beauty of our planet. 

Rita learned to weave at António Arroio Secondary School in Lisbon, when she was 15 years old. She specialized in weaving and studied in detail the structure of textiles. After finishing school, she wanted to extend her knowledge and pursue further studies. She decided to attend the Fashion Design Course at IADE, also in Lisbon. Once enrolled, she discovered her second passion, Photography, which led her to to a mix of fashion, textiles and photography. 

Then, in 2015, the "Year of the Light", Rita decided to create her own textile brand named "Cross Lights". Rita chose this path based on how good weaving makes her feel and the fun she has during the whole process of making a piece, researching, creating the design and weaving. The artist has discovered for herself that weaving is the best way to express herself, due to the endless possibilities of this craft.
