Portuguese folk art and craft

Santos Ofícios opened in 1995 to promote genuine Portuguese folk art and traditional handicraft. Luísa Cruz and Homero Cardoso, founders of this project, travel all over the country to find the artisans they represent. Hundreds of artisans have been represented from Tó Zé Vale with his wooden masks, Xana Monteiro and Carlos Lima who reinvented black ceramics, Irmãs Flores who continues making the Estremoz figurines recognized as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, to António Ramalho, the great-grandson of Rosa Ramalho, the most famous Portuguese folk artisan, among many others.
