Benedetta Maxia was born in Pisa, Italy, and has lived in Lisbon for ten years, where she also works as a contemporary dance dancer and translator.
She is the author of the brand Fulana Beltrana Sicrana, unique cloth dolls and collection. Each piece is individually created without the use of molds, and is hand made by Maxine Benedetta.
Fulana and Fulano have black hair, Beltrana and Beltrano red, Sicrana and Sicrano brown and each one has its own personality and style! All edits made to Burel are inspired and made from fabric scraps created and produced at Burel Mountain Originals.
