About Us

What we do.

At Foundarte we source and curate objects that represent the best of Portuguese tradition, to bring you timeless pieces of incredible quality and craftsmanship. The Artisans we work with are the best at their craft, perfecting an art that was passed on from generation to generation.

Slowly this tradition became endangered. The 60s witnessed villages migrating to the cities; and by the 90s, industrialization made mass production so popular that only the most resilient of artisans survived.Today Portugal is again embracing and treasuring this old, rich and wonderful culture, soon enough to become a Unesco World Heritage Patrimony.

Foundarte is at the centre of this change, championing for the survival of this art, promoting creative objects that are embedded with the very soul and heart of its artisans.
