When you support Hand Made, you are not just supporting a person, you are purchasing a small part of an Artist's Heart!

"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. 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.

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

"When you are buying HANDMADE, your buying more than just an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks and months of frustation and moments of pure joy. You aren't just buying a thing, your buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a moment of someones life. That's why each piece is unique, no two are alike and they were made just for you!

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

That's La Petite Sardine!"
