    Brand Story

    “I have always always been in love with the art of fashion design and dreamt about having my own label. To be able to develop my own ideas and share them with others. I used to create privately, just for myself. Testing and prototyping ideas with materials that I would tirelessly research and source. Until the day came when I felt ready. Ready to share my creations and open a space to the public.
    The growth of my brand has been inspiring and I am nothing but grateful for this journey.” (Benedita Formosinho)

    Purpose & Mission

    “We create womenswear items and accessories, always prioritising timeless design and quality, selecting noble, indigenous and natural materials sourced in Portugal. Our mission is to promote an environmentally responsible supply chain and local production to guarantee a cultural authenticity in which contemporary interpretation becomes allied to the re-appreciation of traditional mastery.
    The story of my brand is told with the following keywords – timelessness, ethical, responsibility, noble materials and techniques embedded in emotions.” (Benedita Formosinho)

  • Location of Creation or Assembly

    Setúbal, Portugal & Vila do Conde, Portugal

    Materials

    “We use indiginous materials, which naturally occur and are sourced in Portugal, such as reed, lakeshore bulrush, manta alentejana, burel wool, as well as natural fibres, such as linen, cotton, lyocell, cupro and excess stock (deadstock) sourced from Portuguese factories. Our main focus is to creatively upcycle materials that would otherwise be destined for landfill.” (Benedita Formosinho)

    Packaging

    Reused paper bags and boxes.

    Method of Creation

    “The production of most items occurs in our atelier, with the exception of a few items, which are manufactured at small portuguese factories in limited quantities. The distribution of our products within Portugal is done by a local shipping company and international shipments occur via our national mail service in partnership with other countries' national mail services.” (Benedita Formosinho)

    Use & Maintenance

    “All our products must be handled with love and washed by hand or on a delicates cycle inside at cold temperatures with ecological detergents.” (Benedita Formosinho)
