The investigation resulted old Portuguese products, which had been around for decades with their original packaging and that are still made involving an important dose of manufacture.
In November 2004, these products were gathered in boxes according to different themes and in May 2007 the shop A Vida Portuguesa was established in the Chiado, Lisbon.
Considered by the local Time Out magazine one of the 10 most original shops of the Portuguese capital, it goes on surprising and enchanting its visitors. In November 2009 we opened a second shop in the Clérigos, Porto, that was featured in the 2010 Retail Directory of Wallpaper magazine. In 2009 we also launched the online shop, making our products available to the world, in partnership with Feitoria.
From the beginning, we have established partnerships with several old Portuguese brands, in order to develop exclusive AVP products: soaps with Ach. Brito and Confiança, swallows with Bordalo Pinheiro, pencils with Viarco, ceramics with Secla, notepads with Serrote, notebooks with Emílio Braga.
This is our most interesting and ambitious initiative: it involves research, creation, development and promotion of good quality brands and touching products; the praise of Portuguese production.
A Vida Portuguesa is a project consisting of three "material" shops (two in Lisbon and one in Porto). We pick buildings that fit with the character and charm of our products, we shy away from shopping centers and find our true nature in the historical centers, with the heritage and culture that show our products to their best possible light.
The shop in Chiado is located in one of the oldest trading neighborhoods of town, next to coffee shops where the poets, writers and philosophers would meet to exchange ideas and sip the local drinks. It used to be a lab and warehouse for a make-up producer and fabric seller.
The shop in Intendente is located in an old tile producer, as the walls can prove, bringing back the magic to a really special space and an area that had been abandoned in recent years and that is going through a major revamp.
The shop in Porto is located right opposite the Clérigos tower, a landmark of the town in the old town center, near many trendy bars and one of the most beautiful bookshops in the world.
Looking ahead, eyes on the present and inspirations of the past! Apaixonar-te - It's the portuguese verb for falling in love. Arte means art. We just gather the terms.
APAIXONARTE - Falling in love with art.
Passion is the intense feeling that fills our entire body from top to bottom and accelerates our hearts. Once the dopamine works in the brain we are instantly invaded by uncontrollable tics of welfare and uncomplicated happiness.
Apaixonarte (falling in love) is a Portuguese shop and gallery that wants to mess with our senses, memories, impressions and cause new sensations.
Visit us and your heart will begin to beat ....And you will Apaixonarte!
Located in one of the oldest historical quarters of Lisbon, “Cerâmica Bairro Alto” is a unique, versatile and dynamic place, where a customer can participate in workshops, enjoy gallery exhibitions and purchase the unique pieces.
In 1998 it was acquired by ceramist Maria João Ribeiro, who modernized the shop while maintaining the characteristics of the old space.
Cerâmica Bairro Alto produces and sells unique pieces of contemporary ceramics, according to criteria of quality and originality, and partners with other artists, national and international stakeholders in the promotion and sale of their products.
Cerâmica Bairro Alto also offers courses and workshops in ceramics, porcelain and enamel.
Located in Principe Real, the Fashion district of Lisbon, GustoKo brings the best of Philippine’s handmade bags and accessories to Europe.
Our pieces are exquisitely made by the local artisans using natural and recycled materials like wood, fiber, shell and plastic.
We aim to celebrate the Philippine Artistry and uplift the lives of the Filipinos by establishing our local products in the international market.
The passion of João Bernardes Vilela and Tiago Patrício Rodrigues for space and objects led to the creation of Pura Cal, a project that was born in 2010.
For us, Pura Cal it’s a concept, a way of being and thinking environments and furniture. Our mission is to enable the possibility of building different, unique and achievable spaces. Our vision assumes the creation of self-identities, highlighting the spirit of each space and piece, in order to maximize the comfort and well-being, combining the design to our cultural legacy.
We assume that soul is our main characteristic, and our ambition is to assign it to all objects and spaces in which we work. Having a soul is to have a history, a past, a future.
It is to be unique, different from all others, without banalities, but also being "human", with virtues, flaws and inconsistencies. It is this humanization that identifies and defines us as creatives and as a brand!
