Nara Guichon (Santa Maria, Brazil, 1955) is a textile artist, designer, and environmentalist. Since 1983, she has lived and worked in Florianópolis, the capital of the state of Santa Catarina, southern Brazil. Her activity is based on three pillars: [1] manual practices with threads, such as knitting, crochet, embroidery, and weaving, valuing artisanal knowledge; [2] reuse and sustainability, promoting ethical and conscious consumption; [3] respect for the environment, participating in Atlantic Forest recovery activities in Brazil, as well as developing artistic works that evoke this same biome. With a continuous and recognized trajectory as a weaver, Nara Guichon conceived and developed, between 1975 and 2015, a vigorous work in the areas of sustainable design and fashion, which earned her several national and international awards. Since 2017, she has been exclusively and quietly focused on artistic production.
