Marita Moreno’s upcycling line is produced with wastes from other collections and/or materials, in this way we are creating a Circular Economy. Upcycling is the process of transforming unwanted products, waste materials, by-products or useless materials into new materials or products with a higher quality and environmental value.
Burel – a 100% wool cloth produced by a certified Artisanal Production Unit (UPA) of 4th generation family, located in Manteigas, Serra da Estrela. Burel's authenticity results from a sequence of specific operations in the manufacturing process. The wool, after being shorn, washed, spun, woven into the organ and woven into the loom, is trodden on a machine called “pisão”, which knocks and scalds the wool, transforming the fabric into burel, making it tighter, more resistant and waterproof.
They are produced in a sustainable and ethical way - using only Portuguese factories and handmade crafts to create its designs.
