Inspired by Grandma's hand knitted wool sweaters, by the bright colours of the traditional blankets from Alentejo and memories of unforgetable travel destinations, BORDA d'AGUA was born accidentaly when trying to replace a horrible handbag shoulder strap screaming some designer's name by a new one which could better express my own personality and taste.

After several years working in the hospitality industry in my hometown Lisbon and Cascais, I've decided that my passion for travelling and discovering new cultures should drive my way of life. After years of adventures in the Middle East and now back in Europe, I'm sure I've made the right choice and I would like to encourage everyone to follow their own path.
BORDA d'AGUA shares this vision. Be Creative. Embrace your individuality.
Let's create something together!
