Da vida e da morte
O jornalista inglês Rupert Eden esteve nas lojas de Lisboa e do Porto, falou com Catarina Portas sobre as suas motivações para criar A Vida Portuguesa, e ouviu contar a história das mantas alentejanas. Sabiam que em tempos elas eram usadas até mesmo para enrolar os mortos? Deve ser a isso que se chama "um final feliz".
"Portugal has become a shopping destination for quality handmade products and here in Porto’s main shopping street A Vida Portuguesa is no exception. The flagship store offers visitors a place where they can buy a whole range of traditional handmade products all under one roof.
Catarina Portas is the owner and founder of A Vida Portuguesa a former 19th century fabric store that now sells carefully selected retro Portuguese brands ranging from food, toiletries and toys to books and hand crafted stationary.
A Vida Portuguesa products are all 100 percent made in Portugal and are exported all over the world helping to keep the labour intensive and high quality manufacturing afloat . The store also has an online retail section and a second shop in Lisbon."
