History


Feminine noun
Light in English 
Lumière in French

Because it is about highlighting the Portuguese heritage and know-how, because light is a character in its own right in Portugal, because the name is beautiful and short, it has imposed itself naturally.

Luz is made up of stories:
the stories of a people, the stories of a country, the stories of life.

To do this, I went to the origins of Portuguese traditions and heritage through photographs and I reinvented them through textiles. The idea is to play the contrast between vintage and contemporary.

The desire to create small, limited collections is dictated by the human side of handmade and rarity. Each collection will have a specific theme and will be limited in quantities. They will not be reissued.

VALUES


• Support Portuguese craftsmanship and know-how.

• Believe in a fair price for fair work because quality has a value.

• Acknowledge that strong but beautiful pieces will last longer and will continue to tell their stories over the years if you invest sentimental value in their purchase.

• Buy less but buy well, to last.

MISSION

Our linen is not "stone-washed". Indeed, this washing process involves the use of high-dose chemicals, such as chlorine, which can be harmful to the environment and factory workers. The purpose of this process is to give the fabric the softness that occurs naturally after a few washes.
Because we do not use this washing process, our linen is still pure and you will have to "break" it to make it softer, which means that you will simply have to wash it several times to speed up the process of softening the fabric.

KNOW-HOW

Because we value quality and small-scale production, we decided to use craftsmen to produce Luz.
The tea towels are thus manufactured by a small sewing workshop and the photographs are then screen printed in a specialized workshop.
Each tea towel is hand-printed one by one, using environmentally friendly water-based inks, all in Portugal.
