Meet the Makers


We’re in love with the honest, traditional materials - terracotta, cotton, cane, jute, linen and wool - we use to create our collection, and collaborate closely with traditional craftspeople and small, family-owned businesses to bring it all to life.



Rui's family has been in the pottery business for over 200 years, and we're proud to continue that tradition with him on our terracotta ware.

Rui is a master on the potter's wheel (he started in the family business when he was 8). Our collection with him is painted by his aunt Regina, and other talented painters.



Meet Rui and Fernanda, the talented couple behind the small family-owned mill that weaves all of our rugs, ottomans, cushions and wall-hangings.

We love their passion, drive and creativity, and watching Rui spin yarn from dozens of different colours of thread recycled from the fashion industry is a thing to behold.

Paulo is a young potter, proud to be the third generation carrying on his family's tradition by working on the wheel. He makes our Terra, Dipped and Terços collections



Júlia’s father was a weaver of traditional fishing baskets, and other handwoven goods in both cane and wood. She met and married Sérgio, who started weaving too, and together they keep the tradition alive.

The cane chair they make for us has been made by their family for decades.


Tile Makers

Maria and Rui are the brother and sister duo that make all our tiles by hand, using techniques perfected back in the 16th and 17th century. Tiles are in their blood. They inherited the business from their mother and work with designers, architects and even Lisbon's Tile Museum.


Wood Carver
Bernadinho makes all of candlesticks, bowls and stools of oak and Portuguese chestnut wood. Working in wood is a family tradition he's justifiably proud of - His father was renowned for carving the intricate decorative yokes worn by oxen in local parades.


Linen Weaver

Maria weaves all of our Portuguese linen towels by hand. It’s amazing to watch her work on her wooden looms (she has 6, some more than a hundred years old), carefully crafting the patterns woven into each piece.
