These bags are made by the old craftsmen of the village of Castanheira Alcobaça, gathered under the impetus of Nuno Barreiro, a son of the village. A beautiful and authentic story!
The rush grows wild in the region, no fertilizer, no pesticides, it only takes a few efforts to harvest it.
Calibration, drying, everything is manual and local: no transport, no chemicals, no machines...
Weaving: At this stage too, everything is local. The village craftsmen share a workshop and take turns to take care of the orders.
Assembly, finishing, and controls: no bag leaves the workshop without the oldest ones having inspected it from every angle.
