TelmaDA is Jewelry and Design. It’s a story that tell´s a possible agregation of “my two worlds”, Design and Architecture. Always under a very unique and genuine perspective.
TelmaDa is a brand that combines architectural concepts with contemporary design. It is born basing itself on contemporary jewelry. The first intentions of creating this brand occurred in Rome where Telma worked as an architect…. When she returned to Porto, Portugal, her sketchbook was taken out of the drawer and thus the “IN” collection was developed for POP´s competition.
TelmaDa is born out of a one of a kind concept, seeking the use of industrial materials usually associated with construction, in the contemporary jewelry context. An innovative language that gives new value to non-noble materials in a unique and exclusive segment as that of jewelry. Designed for the contemporary woman, versatile, who likes and demands to be unique. We prime ourselves for the difference and uniqueness in the art of “well-being”, where each piece is handmade with love and dedication.
We produce unique and exclusive pieces. They are handmade in an irreverent and unique design, where its inspiration, even though it can come from any direction, has its main focus in architecture, in its volumetric expressions, with all its volumes and voids as well as the asymmetries that please us so much. As if the planning of a building would be present in such an element as a simple necklace.

We dream of a fair trade world, where each can build an independent style out of the work of conscious individuals.
Noise Goods is a line of handcrafted accessories for those who reject the ordinary and disposable, and instead prefer to forge a solid friendship with simple, quality products. Carrying and cherishing what matters may be the best way to care for our environment and build an independent style.
We are passionate about solid craftsmanship, it make us unique. We select our materials for their durability, ageing qualities, and reduced impact on the environment. We found this combination in the artisanal industry of Portugal in the production of vegetable-tanned leather and burel woven.

A barber and a shoemaker – both of them already grandfathers – are the inspiration behind the Weekend Barber brand established in Porto, in 2012.
Weekend Barber is an experimental atelier that conveys together know-how and design.
The choice of materials and graphic elements are utterly important since each collection is a capsule and has its own imaginary.
Entirely designed and produced in Portugal.

João Branco and Luis Sanchez created Storytailors in 2001 after finishing their Fashion Design studies at the Architecture College of Lisbon’s Technical University. They met during 1996 while attending the same classes; during the course they realised that their aesthetic universes had a lot in common and that their ideas and opinions about fashion were complementary.
They joined forces, matured ideas and decided to create a project with a name-concept that would reflect internationally their way of seeing and working fashion. Passion for History, fables and stories along with their fascination with garment construction, tailoring and fashion gathered two words into one, and thus story and tailors became Storytailors. From their researches and inspirations they craft stories for the future in a liberating way, revealing them as chapters in every collection. The metaphorical language implicit in each garment is their way of communicating. Their work mixes History, contemporaneity and future in timeless design. Each Storytailors garment survives the season in which it was designed, and can be reproduced at any time, on demand or in special editions.
Every year the Storytailors present their collections during the Portugal Fashion week – one of the leading national fashion events. Promptly they also take their work across borders, showing in other cities like Paris. Consequently, Storytailors garments have regular presence in the editorials of the most prestigious national and international publications.
In 2006 they installed themselves in the Centre of Lisbon, Chiado, with a store and atelier in Calçada do Ferragial 8. In a pre-eighteenth century building divided into three floors, where once were stored spices, fabrics and precious stones, one can breath today other aromas and find other treasures ...
Their creations extend also to other artistic areas. They Develop costumes for theatre and dance - highlighting the work undertaken for the Nationals Theatres, D. Maria II in Lisbon and S. João in Oporto, Municipal Theatre of S. Luiz and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon.
They also design stage costumes for music artists such as: The Gift, Amalia Hoje, Misia and Yolanda Soares.
