Pankuka creates hand-printed and Illustrated textiles, by using manual techniques, eco-friendly inks and dyes and natural fibers.
My name is Maria João and i am the founder and designer behind Pankuka. I am Portuguese and i am a creative maker since i can remember. I’ve been working as a designer, illustrator and as a self-taught and passionate textile designer.
Pankuka was born from my wish to work with all these skills i've been learning throughout the years, as well as from my passion for creating and making, through the use of manual processes and eco-friendly materials, as much as possible.
