Tartaruga is a small independent publisher, record label, and printing press, based in London. Our focus is on producing limited-run physical and tactile editions, across a spectrum of music, books and print. The emphasis throughout is on creating beautifully presented objects, incorporating hand-made elements, screen-printed covers and inserts, and always with a firm belief in artist-led artwork and design.
Tartaruga Records was established in 2008 as an outlet for hand-crafted releases of exploratory & experimental music. You can find our music for sale in most digital outlets, but we would recommend using our bandcamp page.
Tartaruga Press was established in 2013 to publish innovative work combining the best in contemporary photography, design, writing and printing.
Tartaruga Print is a screenprinting studio producing hand-pulled screenprinted work by artists, designers and photographers. As well as producing the work available on this site, Tararuga is available for commissioned print work, please see the Print page for more information.
In addition we run Jabuti Press, a separate outlet for experimental screenprint work and editions.
Throughout all of our work there is a strong emphasis on using sustainable materials and recycled packaging.
