Stunning Azulejos from a workshop in Azeitao, Portugal

We have found this very interesting little workshop by pure chance in Portugal. The manager Luis is not only very skilled but also extremely helpful. They do bespoke handmade tiles with motives from the 16th, 17th and 18th century from Italy, Portugal, Spain, France and Dutch. Colours and sizes can be adopted to the client’s requirements. Although the communication was not so easy language wise, we managed to order a beautiful wall panel for a client with 16th century Italian motives. It has come out just wonderfully!
Luis and his team did a great job on it by bringing the brightness of the colours down and make them look really ancient!Azulejos from AzeitaoIMG_4822
