ABOUT PORTUGUESE CARPETS
Rugs combining modernity and tradition. The most popular carpets in Portugal are the "tapte Puxado". Made from recycled cotton scraps, woven by hand, they are particularly ecological carpets. They are generally used as bath mats but their modern patterns and bright colors allow you to find them in every room of the house.
Handmade carpets. The craft industry has remained very present in Portugal and particularly in the rural areas of the North. It is there that, sometimes, whole villages organize themselves in cooperatives or small workshops, around an old restored loom, to make beautiful, cheerful and colorful carpets.
Carpets in wool or cotton. The growing interest in traditional arts, the long tradition of wool sheep breeding in the "Serra da Estrela" and the restoration of old looms allows the development of small workshops that produce extraordinary Portuguese wool carpets.
The bath carpets, however, remain the best known. They are small cotton carpets present in all the Portuguese houses. Hand-woven, particularly heavy and non-slip, sturdy and above all machine washable, they are today available in an infinity of colors.
