António, a handmade story

António, a handmade story
Two sisters belonging to a 2nd generation of a family of leather goods manufacturers decided to honour their father giving his name to the brand they created. And then a new leather goods brand was born in Portugal
One of the pillars of the brand is the concern to ensure a clean and sustainable design process for António's products. The other pillar lies on a combination of handcrafting manufacturing, focused on every detail and assuring high quality standards.

Keeping a close relationship with their suppliers, many with a close business relation developed over the course of 3 decades, the brand takes advantage of being geographically well located in the center of Portugal.

In their own words: "This is our craft, an art dedicated to leather. A tradition and knowledge built along the years. Here our ideas are shaped under the hands of our artisans. It is a manual work of skill only achieved from the dedication in each detail. This is our aim. To continue working on leather and investing on the search of new techniques and methods in this handcrafted and unique business."
