Marisa Wilhelmi Designs

Marisa Wilhelmi was born in Brazil, in a very talented family that, by necessity, handmade a lot of things.  Her maternal grandparents both worked in the sewing industry and were extremely encouraging throughout her life.

When Marisa moved to Houston, having access to a bigger variety of materials, she could combine her cultural background with new learned techniques, flourishing her desire to produce one of a kind pieces. And that is how her original brand Smartsew was born.
