It’s a small scaled factory where they produce a little over 300 meters per day.
With 12 people working in two shifts, they are one of a kind since there’s almost no linen weavers left in Portugal. The owner, Oscar (on the right), always teaches us something new and it’s always eager to do new things!
We love linen, as much as you do! We were having a hard time finding a good supplier because almost no one weaves linen in Portugal. We kept asking here and there and someone gave us Oscar’s contact.
We went there and got delighted with the weaving machines, so familiar to us (they are the same as the wool ones they use in Covilhã) and the warmth we felt as soon as we got there made us be sure that we would finally be able to work with linen!
