About Us

Aloha! We are Rita and Miguel and we live in Portugal in a special place nearby the sea, a place that is crowned by these magnificent mountains that we call "Enchanted Forest". We share a cosy appartment with our three young sons.

I'm Rita and my passion for design (specially mandalas) and arts lives inside me since childhood. But unfortunately, due to family influences, I graduated in management. When my oldest son was born, I quit my job and became a full-time mother. And since then I let my inner child reborn up and started again to do what I always really loved to do: to design and to create new worlds. And so "Um Mundo Novo" that in english means "A New World" was born. 

Two things I learned so far: 

• First we should not let anyone influences us and manipulates our passions and skills.

• Second, it's never too late to Dream and do what we really Love to do.

Miguel, my husband besides being a teacher walks along with me in this magic mandala design & art project. 

We design mandalas and we make mandala jewelry with energy healing (wearable art) and healing fairies with our mandalas. We are Designer-Makers.

that leads us to bind in heart and mind"
