Each Toino Abel bag is unique, entirely handmade and part of our history.
Our family has dedicated itself through generations to the beautiful handcraft of basket making. Over time our bags have become an icon of Portuguese artisanal craft.
From the Village to the World
In the recent past our craft became close to extinction. We have now successfully brought it back to life and want to share our heritage with you.
Working with Nature
We love to work with nature. In return we aim to treat the natural world with respect. We source our materials in Portugal and we only work with vegetable tanned leather - an ancient and sustainable process of leather tanning.
There is no Craft without People
In order to attract new artisans we believe in supporting them by fairly rewarding their work. This is how tradition keeps going on.
