Playing with tradition
ALL THE FABRICS WE USE HAS A TRADITION AND HISTORY BEHIND
Burel is a traditional Portuguese artisanal fabric that is 100% wool. It is one of the most resistant fabric in the world. It is a strong, tight, wear-resistent, water-repellent and fire-retardant fabric. This characteristics come from the way in which it is made: the wool is washed, spun and woven into a fabric. Then it is pounded and scalded with very hot water, making it more compact and resistant. Burel was originally created by the highland people to protect themselves from the rain, snow and cold winds of the mountains, used to make cloaks and other cloths, mainly workwear for farmers and shepherds. It is an eco-friendly product without harmful chemicals.
