    Lovely box

    I love this box. However, as with another item I purchased from We are Portugal, there is a flaw in the glazing! One small spot on the rim of the lid lacks glaze. If I didn't love this box so much I would send it back. Unlike the problem I had previously, this flaw does not prevent me from using the box.
    Are you selling "seconds?"

    keeping tradition alive

    Tiles are a fixture of culture and design in many parts of Portugal, and you will even find them on famous buildings like the São Bento Railway Station in Porto.

    Even though tiles are originally from Egypt, they were first brought to Portugal by the Arabs, in the 13th century. However, it was in the XVI century that King D. Manuel really introduced the azulejos to Portugal. They were imported from Seville after the King’s visit to Spain. It is said that he was so enchanted by these tiles, that he had to bring some to decorate the National Palace of Sintra.

    We Are Portugal proudly partnered with one of the most recognized contemporary artists, that keep producing this unique form of art, using the same techniques of the XVI century and bring them to you.
