Announcement   Three concepts were the inspiration of this project: biodiversity, sustainability and preservation of portuguese traditional textile heritage.

Burra beanies is committed working only with high quality 100% wool from artisanal and semi-industrial production units in Portugal. Wool is all from indigenous portuguese sheep breeds, most under extinction status. We are now working with wool from Bordaleira Serra da Estrela sheep, an old indigenous breed, that grazes in the fields of a mountain natural park, Serra da Estrela, under sustainable farming practices and promoting micro-economic sustainability of small farmers and shepherds located at remote and isolated small villages.
The hats and beanie patterns are inspired on the traditional heritage of Portuguese textile, knitted and handwoven designs, for centuries present in our cultural assets, which knitting patterns have been adapted and commercialized by Retrosaria.

Bordaleira Serra da Estrela sheep is one of the more old sheep species in Europe. It is believed to have emerged from cross breading between wild cervids in the mountains of that region and african domesticated sheep brought into south Europe with the Arabic colonization. For centuries sheep have been the main surviving resource of mountain people, supplying wool, milk and meet, soil fertilization, and contributed to landscape preservation of the natural park of the mountains of Serra Da Estrela. One of the most famous portuguese cheese is made with the milk for Serra da Estrela sheep, a unique portuguese delicatessen, the "queijo da serra da estrela" (cheese Serra da Estrela).
