BUREL FACTORY

THE FACTORY OF BUREL MOUNTAIN ORIGINALS

THE FACTORY OF BUREL MOUNTAIN ORIGINALS

It all began in 1947, the year that saw the birth of Lanificio Império, the most important wool mill in the region.

In 2010 the factory was discovered by two mountain explorers, João Tomás and Isabel Costa, who, after realizing the heritage and the precious knowledge, decided not to let Burel die and to proceed with the recovery of the factory that was later to become Burel Factory – the factory of Burel Mountain Originals. There was created a space for the design and production of burel, the most traditional wool fabric in the local wool industry, now used in a very different and innovative way.

Today it continues to producing, using the same machines and traditional equipment, from the time the industry was still made by hand, thus ensuring the production of unique, different and high quality fabrics, preserving the past, reinterpreting it and making it into a story of the future. In its interior we can still find a small shop where you can get what you have just seen being produce.
