MARIA LA PORTUGUESA

Each Maria La Portuguesa is unique, with distinct patterns that reflect the state of mind of the artisan at the time of its creation.

The lamentations of the Women of Castanheira (Cós) - 2000: 

«The reed comes in a bunch from Alentejo, then we cut him, it gets wet, he gets into the pack and sulfur himself several times for him to clear, because it comes black. Then we choose the ones we want, takes off some black and then we work. To dye it, we do this in a boiler with boiling water. It is colored red, green, purple and white. He makes many calluses on the hands and deforms the bones, and if we take into account the prices of paints, the hours it takes to weave and the hours that a basket takes to weave (about two), we realize the fairness of the lamentations of these women."

in PERDIGÃO, Teresa - Tesouros do Artesanato Português, Madeiras, Fibras vegetais , Materiais Afins, Volume I, Verbo, Fotos de Nuno Calvet, 2001, p.193.

Please note that due to the handcrafted nature of our basket bags, slight imperfections may occur - because of this, no two baskets are identical in size, shape or color.
