About

From Portugal with love...

I was a teacher of "grown up" students for 15 years… And then my life changed... Needles changed my life with the project "agulha não pica" - needle does not prick - my other etsy sop...

With the needles and following Portuguese traditional embroidery I’ve found out much about Portugal which moved me in every product I’ve shaped.

Discovering Portuguese crafts I came across traditional materials that surprised me and encouraged me to reinvent applications for its use.

Soon I met cork and although I cannot say it is mutual, I have a big crush on it… The first outcome of this passion was the worldonlap lap tray, or lap desk, 100% Portuguese, just cork and cotton. It really seems we have the world on our lap...

Burel - a traditional Portuguese felted wool fabric highly resistant and compact - was a more recent discovery, but a very inspiring one, used in the capuchas, our beautiful laptop cases.

Then came the valet trays... And, lately, more products that bring these materials to the kitchen and the table...

It is the desire to (re)create ways of being sustainably Portuguese that moves me, always inspired by the charm of the little things ...

Many fruits of the mind and heart is my wish for everyone!

    What do you need to know about me... That I'm in love with Portuguese culture and traditions... That when I am not creating something with Portuguese soul I'm teaching or enjoying my family...

When the bark of a cork-oak tree is harvested, the tree is not damaged and a new layer of cork grows back slowly during the following nine years before it gets harvested again. Thus, cork use does not endanger the cork-oak tree and it continues to grow and to produce more cork, allowing it to continue to absorb carbon dioxide while preserving the montado (a cork-oak field. ecosystem -
Cork use dates back thousands of years, and its future depends on us. Choose cork. Our trees, our economy and our environment thank you!
