ABOUT REED BAGS
The reed, an ecological product. The reed is a perennial plant that grows naturally in humid environments in the form of large clumps that can reach 1.5 metres in height. It grows naturally in marshes and all wetlands. You just have to wait until it reaches maturity to harvest it. No fertilizer, no treatment, no inputs, no depletion of the land, here nature is respected and the landscapes remain beautiful.
Reed bags, a traditional AND trendy product. The tradition of reed weaving is an old tradition in the Ribatejo region. This tradition had been lost, as the objects produced had fallen into disuse. Nuno's genius idea was to abandon his craft, re-visit the design of the bags produced and bring a modern touch to them.
Reed bags, an ethical product. It is today a whole village which finds an activity and more than an activity: the workshop is located in the center of the village, in front of a small trade acting as a coffee shop, grocery store, post office, it is a lively leu, meeting place of all the craftsmen who take part in the manufacture of the bags.
