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. 




Timeless Style

Our bags are loved by a world-wide audience and have been featured in international magazines like Vogue UK, Cut Magazine or Frankie from Australia. Recently we have participated in Madrid Fashion Week in collaboration with fashion brand Ailanto.


Celebrating Cycles

We couldn't be more excited to present you our new ceramic charm. The reed flower represents a new beginning in our production. We harvest our raw material once a year when is teeming with seeds and a new life ahead.

Made by hand, one by one, by a local potter.
