About the Factory
Located less than an hour north of Porto — Portugal’s 2nd largest city — our T-Shirt and sweatshirt factory is small in comparison to surrounding competitors. Known as a team of skilled pattern makers and exceptional seamstresses, alongside a unique production process. The facility has created luxury essential garments in Manhente since 2008.
The Perfect Match
Finding the right factory for any business is a trip. But finding the perfect factory to produce the perfect T-Shirt is a journey. As part of this search, we visited countless jersey specialists across Europe until we found the perfect fit. A first-rate industry reputation led us to this North Portuguese factory, famous for its quality and award-winning finishes. Immediately after feeling the quality of our first samples, we knew we had found our partner.
During our extensive product development process, we were massively impressed by the attention to detail and outstanding quality of each item leaving the factory. It was no surprise that the same factory hand-making our T-shirts, also produces for some of the most prestigious luxury brands in the world. Therefore, we decided to also produce our Sweatshirt in this factory.
The modern production facility doesn’t account for much without the right people. Our T-Shirt factory is run by Rui, who after more than 20 years in the business, is still obsessed with perfecting all aspects of textile production. He works together with extremely talented and experienced seamstresses, whose dedication and skills make it possible to create unparalleled quality. This talent is rewarded with state of the art working conditions and fair European pay.
Rui also loves surfing (who could blame him?)
