It all began in 2010 in the village of Manteiga, right in the heart of Serra da Estrela, with the creation of a Design Workshop, in an old wool factory.
Burel is 100% wool, giving it nobility and prominence, drawing the Collections Home, Office, Decorative and Fashion Accessories and more recently, wall coverings and Ceilings, premiered in the new headquarters Microsoft in Lisbon, Lisbon Experience Microsoft.
One goal was to keep alive one Factory "Museum", which still wove this product in an almost handmade manner, so that the art and knowledge of the weavers of the village would not disappear. Burel transform into unique pieces, handcrafted by experienced seamstresses, combining the passion, dedication and delivery of those working this ancient knowledge to design innovative, relevant and surprising.
After the bankruptcy of the factory and purchase of the same, it was decided to recover not only the production but also the Burel the remaining products were part of the portfolio of the factory. It is in this context that the first born in 2012 Collection of Blankets, Scarves and Scarves of Mantecas by Burel Factory, also presented Fair Interior Lifestyle Tokyo.
The warmth of the wool comes in the form of a wide collection of products, made, as always, hand, telling the story of a life, a region and a country in each of its points.
It is also in 2012 that inaugurated the shop Burel in Lisbon, in the Chiado Rua Serpa Pinto 15B, where, as in the Casa das Penhas Golden, the public has direct contact with their products. Intends to continuously retrieve old patterns, and give them contemporary shapes and colors, as it has done with the Burel, as well as designing new collections.
