Our vision is to create contemporary and hight-quality products with focus on design, colour and reinvention of traditional Portuguese materials and trademarks of the history of Portugal. Luxury art toys and products for home, handcrafted made with high-quality and ecological traditional Portuguese raw-materials which combine ancient erudition with a contemporary design, constitute one line of the products of the brand. All of this products are made in our studio in Oporto, Portugal.
In another line one may find products like t-shirts, bibs, baby bodysuits, note-books or soaps centered in remarkable characters and icons of the culture and Portuguese history, which are now recreated through fun illustrations. With all of our products we pay a lot of attention to detail, not only in terms of design but throughout the entire production process. Both of us, Rita Faria and Tiago Couto, two Portuguese Graphic designers, created in 2013 this great poetic, demanding and exciting adventure, the one we call Carapau Portuguese Products.
This collection is made with burel (woolen fabric) and hand stamped Portuguese linen.We hand print the linen with manual screen print. Our inks do not contain ozone-depleting chemicals such as CFC’s and HCFC’s, aromatic hydrocarbons or any volatile solvents.
