Our formula

Firstly, the creative process began with an investigation about the technology that would fit the best with our values and goals. We wanted to assure the durability of the functions that we were going to incorporate into our fabrics. That’s why we have chosen nanotechnology since it fuses into the cotton fibers the functions we wanted to have, even before being spun.

We developed a unique blend for each new fabric yarn so we can offer additional care for your body and skin. Each one of our products allies the specificity of our yarn and fabric to the details and jacquards that were inspired by some cultural elements of our country.

After that, it became clear to us that it would only be possible to develop high-quality products. Therefore, we choose a fabric made from 100% Egyptian cotton, with at least 400TC, satin, and with delicate details of confection.

Nature and the Portuguese Sidewalk

Regarding the colors, we were inspired by nature, opting for neutral and light shades that can easily combine with any decorative element. In what concerns the patterns, we have developed plain fabrics for the more minimalist designs, and for the bolder, we have created Jacquards inspired by the Portuguese Sidewalk.

But, why the Portuguese Sidewalk? Well, because it is an undeniable cultural heritage of our country! It is a mix of the culture and construction technology of Romans and Arabs. However, they introduce it to our culture only during D.João II’s reign and only in 1842 we started to use the Portuguese sidewalks. We believe that the richness and diversity of the designs contribute to the appreciation of the public space. And it was exactly for these reasons that we were inspired to make our bed sheets beautiful and undoubtedly Portuguese!
