When it comes to preserve crafts we are at the art of human values. Portugal has had his glorious moment in past century. In time when there was raw material enough in the country to be carefuly transformed by skilled artisans and passionate people.
Nowadays there seems to be a shift in more and more consumers in order to choose the local dream attitude. They pay more attention to understand where the product comes from and how and by whom it was made. For Us it is an endless reborn that allows to learn and to keep a precious identity.
Reguengos de Monsaraz
Handmade in Reguengos de Monsaraz by artisans on antique looms with Portuguese wool from merino sheep. The Alentejo blankets of Reguengos use dyed wool, which distinguishes them from others produced, in a more homely and familiar way in Baixo Alentejo, where beige and brown, the natural colour of sheep, are used.
Hydraulic Mosaics are still produced one by one, and the manufacturing process has remained the same for over a century. Handcraft in Alentejo, Sintra and Algarve region. The product was presented in 1867 at the Universal Exhibition in Paris by Garret, Rivet i Cia. as a "ceramic" which did not need firing as it was solified by means of presses.
Serra Da Estrela
A fabric from the montains of the central massif of Portugal used for rigorous winters. BUREL has almost extinguished by imports of cheaper products. Due to new investers and to a lot of creativity It comes alive today in hands of several brands.
Burel requires a manufacturing process that begins with Carding, Spinning, Weaving and Finishing.
Wool & Linen handwooven Fabrics to carry Cereals
Its origin is from North region where until the middle of the 20th century a lot of cereals were produced in Portugal. The web was made of linen cotton and the cover was made of wool. The sacks were used to transport and store the grain during the summer months. They went to the mills to make the flour and were marked with the initials of the Familias to be used again in the following years.
To create new components and supports for old lighting Globes we often need to had metalic pieces. Those are made by craftmanship close to extinction called "repuxador”.
From a sheet metal disc and several wood molds he produces all kind of shapes units. All metalic component are designed and handmade on demand allowing it to be customized to a client´s needs.
