The Portuguese brands create innovative products and unique designs with the highest quality, using decades-old socially and ecologically responsible processes.
It’s all about the reshaping of product development in the Portuguese textile industry—the principle: more natural and sustainable materials to drive outstanding designs instead of the former traditional production process where the materials are a consequence of the design.
The goal is to learn from nature, rediscover natural resources, apply them in a modern context, and get inspired to find sustainable and regenerative solutions for product development to enrich the industry.
Portugal’s ambitious climate goals ensure sustainability and environmental compliance. Over 84% of the Portuguese companies have invested in reducing energy consumption, water, carbon dioxide emissions, and the national recycling rate is currently set at 71%
