Carite

One of the largest Portuguese manufacturers for luxury brands, Carite exports 95% of its production

Based in Felgueiras, in the North of Portugal, Carite, with more than 25 years of experience, employs more than 250 people and exports essentially to the European market. However, the group works towards the ambition to achieve other destinations in other parts of the globe.

Three brands make up the portfolio of the company: J Reinaldo, a man’s brand directed to a classic public; Tentoes, a sporty casual brand for young man and woman; Stiletto, aimed at classic women who appreciate elegance with touches of irreverence and modernity.

Last year alone Carite group presented sales of 22 million euros and grew 25%, which resulted in new factories acquired and new jobs created in Celorico de Basto and São João da Madeira.
