Mouraria has some of Portugal’s most impressive “azulejos” with Moorish and Arabian influences. The colors of these original tiles were intentionally brought out to highlight Lisbon’s eastern heritage, specifically from the years when it was under Arabian control during approximately 711 AD to 1108 AD.
As our next chapter in keeping with traditional Portuguese “Azulejaria” (tile making), we brought to light the ability to combine an artistic treasure and ancient heritage, with a contemporary sense of style. To bring an even greater life to our patterns, many of our garments have a symbol which will lead you to where the original tiles are. Follow the heart to see what you’re wearing.
Linen is a natural fibre, obtained from the flax plant. Probably the first material used for garments, it was considered the fabric of kings for its characteristics. 100% biodegradable and anti-allergenic, it is especially light and soft.
Top 100% Modal (front); 100% Viscose (back)
Modal. It is a fibre 100% composed of chlorine-free treated cellulose. Modal remains soft even after many washes. It has an excellent ability to let the skin breathe, is a very light fabric and has a brightly and silky coloured finish.
Viscose. Patented in 1892, it was developed in order to replace pure silk. It is an artificial textile fibre, produced from paper pulp which originates from bark, in a process that involves treating and filtrating it until fine threads are obtained and then woven. We choose Viscose because of its comfort, softness, lightness and suitability for warm climates.
