Handmade Homewares from Lusitano 1143


Handmade Homewares from Lusitano 1143

May 31, 2017

Launched late last summer, Lusitano 1143 brings thoughtfully designed homewares—all made in Portugal—to the US market. It was founded by Carlos João Parreira, a Lisbon native who moved to Manhattan to work in contemporary art and lifestyle brands. Now based in Brooklyn, Lusitano 1143 offers goods drawn from longstanding Portuguese traditions like ceramics and textiles, locally sourced materials such as stone and marble, and with nature motifs like lavender, the national flower. (We also like the free US shipping and returns.)
