Ana and Sara Mateus, sisters and designers are the second generation of this family business with a 40-year history to its name. This legacy left to them by their father, António, inspired them to create a brand name in his honor.
«We believe in a world where people and the environment are essential. Creating a brand with a clean and sustainable design came out of our experience. We stick on following the handcrafter’s process, focused on each detail. We’ve chosen to work with a vegetable tanned leather and nickel free accessories, which assure a product in harmony with our environment as well as a new consumption conscience.»

«We like to think that people are getting more conscious about their impact on the planet because of their lifestyle. We believe the changes start in ourselves and we hope this new trend grows and that people decide to buy more quality over quantity.»
