Tradition meets design. Century old skills meet creativity. These were the core concepts that have lead Estufa- Design Consulting to create À Capucha!. Inspired by the beauty of the Portugese wrap used in the countryside, young designers Maria João Ruivo, Raquel Pais and Cecília Lages, together with with artist and designer Helena Cardoso, have set their hearts into remaking this piece of Portuguese History. All so that it would not be forgotten, but also so that it could be part of today’s History.

100 per cent wool and 100 per cent lovingly handmade by Portuguese artisans, the limited edition of these pieces represents a paradigm change in the world of national design. These ‘capuchas’ tell stories. Stories intertwined with the country’s History.  This is a brand that explores the convergence of design, manufacture and quality. And one to watch.
