IIdeal & Co, Living Heritage* is the culmination of diverse histories and experiences: a brand that sees itself as passionate, dreamy and spontaneous, where each piece is much more than just what you see and touch.
Although Ideal & Co - Living Heritage* is a brand created in 2012, it is actually the continuation of a long ago project that began to take shape in 1935 through the hands of Rute’s grandfather, Antonio Vieira, when he was but a young boy of 14 years.
The pieces sold by Ideal & Co, Living Heritage* are created with the best Portuguese leathers. These leathers are tanned with vegetable tannins, obtained from tree bark, such as Mimosa, and are dyed with natural dyes. In this tanning process none of the chemicals based on Chromium salts are used.
Inspired by the entire historical, social and cultural life of a family, and of a region Ideal & Co - Living Heritage* has as a starting point, and inspiration for each collection, the richness of materials as well as the natural and human resources of the "Parque Natural das Serras d’Aire e Candeeiros".
