“one day a woman had a dream, others joined her, and josefinas were born. josefinas is a portuguese brand born from a dream. in portugal, there is something that has never died: the savoir faire of craftsmen and the passion for an idea. in a country in crisis, where there was little room for dreams, making handmade shoes had a new name: josefinas. 'never give up' has always defined josefinas path. the name josefinas was born in honor of filipa júlios grandmother, the brand's founder.”

SIENNA [clothing line]

“I was born in lisbon. raised by two professional seamstresses who shared the same name, maria, and the passion for tailoring… they were my grannies. growing up their side had an impact in the way I look at the clothes and fashion in general. I inherited their meticulous work ethics and love for detail. sienna started as a hobby and is now my full time job. at sienna I believe in the uniqueness of a small production and pieces that last. I'm always looking for fabrics and details that make my pieces stand out. I don't follow a trend but, there is one thing I always aim for: making clothes for women to feel both comfortable and confident in themselves.”

“lemon jelly is a portuguese company leader in the footwear industry. for lemon jelly, a sustainable fashion mindset started many years ago. a project that starts indoors in the brand factory, with a world wide vision for the planet preservation. we reutilize production waste and old pair of shoes, and close the loop of the production process contributing to a more sustainable process. from recycle to recyclable, plastic is seen from a new perspective when its life is a never-ending circle.”
