I was lucky enough to have my company fly me to Lisbon last weekend to attend the office’s Christmas party there. What a privilege! It was great to go to the party and I was also allowed to stay longer to spend time with husband, family and friends. However, every time I go back to my country I feel sad because everyone seems to be depressed and with a high amount of low self-esteem. If you have been paying attention to the news you will know that there is a financial crisis going on there at the moment and austerity is the Government’s response to it. This means a decline on the quality of life as well as opportunities and worse than that, a general demoralization of the whole population.
Portugal has so many good things for us nationals to be proud of, that also people in other places should be aware of. If you think there isn’t anything of interest being produced in my country, think again! For that reason I am starting a series of posts about the good things about Portugal that everyone should know about!
One of the high quality products we have available are the textiles. For that reason, high end brands seek our industry as our factories specialize in high quality products. Check out Urbanara’s really interesting video about this here.
I remember when I mother was still alive, that we always bought home textiles made in Portugal for this same reason and I want to continue the tradition. This website has products that are Made in Portugal and that can be ordered online. I may start doing my shopping there from now on.
