"Waiting on the world to change? ... Not an option ... at La Petite Sardine we only look for sustainable materials to add the right touch to our Basket Bags, with the main focus on preserving our cultural heritage.

Together we work with artisans from all corners of the world, but especially with Portuguese artisans to design, develop and sell quality handmade products with a contemporary twist. Every single one of our wicker and reed products is handmade by a Portuguese artisan. We take pride in sourcing and using local materials, we also focus on creating partnerships that promote sustainability.

Do you support your local artisans?

We do! With extreme proud and gratitude"

"How and where our Basket Bags are made is hugely important to us, which is why our Basket Bags are handmade with high quality, organic and sustainable materials and produced through fair trade practices.

Our Basket Bags production is handled by a small team and everything is made in small batches in limited quantities.

Slow manufacturing, fair trade, ethical, handmade and eco goods ....

That's La Petite Sardine!"
