Fuxico are flowers, made by hand out of fabric remnants. They often feature beads in their centers to disguise the rough edges, and are sometimes used individually to decorate pillows, or sewn together to create quilts. The word comes from the Portuguese word fuxicar (to gossip), and making them is a craft tradition kept alive by women who gather together around tables to talk about their lives as they work.
These are women from Brazil’s Nordeste, who have left their homes to work for families not their own.
