  • The museum works in the House of the artisan itself. Tip Frazão transforms materials such as jute, patchuli, feathers, among others, into unique pieces! Tablecloths, dresses, fans, handbags and hats were some of their creations that are true works of art. Even onion peel became art. The museum was created in 1999 by the artisan who died in 2017. Pope John Paul Segundo, the Queen of Belgium and Juscelino Kubitschek used pieces from the Craftslady. Dita taught his daughters his art. Today one of them, with more than 70 years, moved from Rio de Janeiro to take care of the museum alone that was the passion of his mother. It works with the daughter's income and the sale of products she manufactures. The government pays only the light. It is absurd that a work like this, which has led the culture of Pará to the world, today has only the dismay of the authorities and is preserved only by filial love.

  • Place where he lived tip frazão, with some pieces of own authorship using material from the forest itself. Some of the history of Pará. It's worth the visit.

  • It was one of the most impactful places I've ever visited. The structure is simple, works in the Craftswoman's own house and is conserved by one of her daughters, an amazing lady who shows us a bit of how empowered, creative, visionary and amazing her mother was. I left there changed and dazzled.

  • One of the mandatory stops for those visiting Santarém, tells the story of this exceptional craftsman who conquered the whole of Brazil with his clothes made with regional raw material.
