Handmade

A Portuguese House, naturally

Before the standardization brought by the Industrial Revolution, each people built their own houses with materials that Nature provided: wood, granite, schist, basalt, etc.

This is particularly visible in Portugal, a country with an admirable architectural and cultural diversity, reflected in the traditional houses of each region.

This collection is a tribute to that heritage, that aims to preserve authenticity and memories of Portugal's typical houses.
