Do you know the trapilho?

These are big balls of XXL cotton threads which allows to make all kinds of baskets, pouches, carpets in no time! To see what these balls look like balls, find our trapilho in big or mini size.

The trapilho is actually a thread coming from recycling called mesh or jersey (fine knitted fabric for t-shirt). This recycling is done in Europe, mainly in Portugal.

We have selected for you on our pinterest board some of our achievements in trapilho to give you ideas. From the carpet to the ottoman cover, from the colorful baskets to jewelery or star decoration, there is certainly something that delights you!:


Please, you also, send us your trapilho achievements photos, we will be happy to publish them on this blog.
