This Portuguese based company is an award winning designer and manufacturer of interior design products. It offers a comprehensive range of home and interior products, such as blankets, pillows, poufs, rugs and lamps.
By upcycling, the company resuses materials that are no longer relevant for many, without degrading their composition fot eh next use.
It is now looking to expand its sales by increasing its distribution network in Europe.
The Portuguese company established in 2017 stands out from the competition because they design and manufacture designer pieces that can be used in daily life, combining disposable fabrics and ancient techniques and integrating practical products into an interior.
The company is determined to reinterpret the disposable, allying the ancient textile techniques from looms and needles with the creative reuse of materials that once were considered ‘disposable’.
These unique design pieces are handmade and nearly 100% energy consumption free.
They have been successful in selling their products to consumers and retailers across the domestic market and also other countries, such as France, Greece, Italy, Spain, Sweden, The Netherlands, USA, Canada and China.
This young company is already part of “Guimarães Marca”, a project promoted by the Municipality of Guimarães to boost local companies.
This Portuguese startup is also a member of “Fibrenamics Green”, a platform designed by the University of Minho for incorporation of industrial waste into innovative products.
The company also integrated the winning project “The Most Portuguese Hotel in the World”, a challenge launched by FIL Exhibition Centre (Lisbon), to show the excellence of Portuguese products.
More recently as the result of their participation in FORMEX and MAISON & OBJECT, their disruptive creations received media coverage.
The company has identified potential opportunities in Europe for its upcycling, handmade products and therefore wishes to appoint distributors, retailers or sales agents to help create sustainable business opportunities in their markets.
This Portuguese company offers the following advantages to potential partners:
• Unique design
• High quality fabrics
• Green handmade products
• Significant savings in terms of energy consumption
• In-house design team
The company would prefer to work with independent retailers or small retail chain owners, ideally with up to ten stores.
The company also seeks distributors and agents that have a client base of home furnishing and design stores who would like to expand their portfolio.
