INTRODUCING THE PORTUGABA
MADE WITH LOVE
Created using traditional techniques and local artisanal know-how, the PORTUGABA is Christian’s ode Portugal, his second home and long-time source of inspiration. Bright colours express the sunny optimism of a country and a people so loved by the designer, their stories woven into its very fabric.
THE HUMAN TOUCH
From the north of Portugal to the south, the PORTUGABA unites the remarkable talents of artisans from all over the country. Whether passed down from generation to generation or revived from near extinction, their skills and knowledge are what keeps Portuguese tradition alive. And this is what Christian wanted to celebrate with the PORTUGABA.
A COLLECTOR’S ITEM
From the painted Azulejos style beads that adorn its handles, to the fringing and the intricate raised puxados motifs covering the panels that make up its body, every single component of the bag has been meticulously made by hand meaning that each piece is unique. Combining form function and timeless style, the PORTUGABA has all the makings of an ideal summer tote.
