What is Portuguese Handicraft?

Portuguese handicraft is a rich and very diverse cultural expression, which reflects the history, traditions and identity of the country.

Over the centuries, Portuguese artisans have produced unique and authentic pieces, often reflecting our cultural and culinary traditions, transmitting these skills from generation to generation.

Portuguese craftsmanship produces many types of pieces made mainly from ceramics, clay, metal, leather, fabric, wood and stone.

Each region of the country has its own forms of handicraft and is greatly influenced by the climate and eating habits, preserving local traditions and techniques.

The richest regions in handicrafts are the region of Barcelos, where the traditional Galo de Barcelos and Figurado are the most represented, the Region of Caldas da Rainha where phallic symbols predominate, the Region of Aveiro and Lisbon with the typical Azulejos of Churches and public buildings, Alentejo and Algarve with Carpets and Decorative Crockery and Minho with Embroidery.

At an international level, the most appreciated pieces are the Galo de Barcelos, the Swallows, the Sardines, the Embroidery and the Azulejos.

Taking advantage of the country's tourism development, Portuguese handicrafts are a source of income for many artisans and regions and keep local and national traditions alive.

Handicraft from LoveitPortugal store, in particular the Barcelos Roosters, Swallows, Musicians and Sardines, are certainly an excellent souvenir from Portugal.
