A Vida Portuguesa has over 400 suppliers, the vast majority of which experiencing the harmful consequences of this crisis: both rare artisans, independent publishers or small companies whose excellency we recognise and larger companies that were finally straightening things out and starting to thrive.
“One for all” is a series of campaigns designed for our online store, which once every two weeks shall present two brands with a broad listing of its most special products found exclusively online. These companies are friends of ours, projects we admire with products we love and wish to make known, point out, help.

Between May 2017 and January 2018, RTP broadcasted a documentary series comprising 16 episodes and presented by Catarina Portas, the mind behind A Vida Portuguesa. In each of those 25-minute episodes the doors to factories where the best Portuguese products are made would open for the audience to learn about the physical structures, technologies, practices, but above all the people (and families) who are committed to them and who make up their fundamental core.
Swallows have arrived, jacarandas have blossomed and A Vida Portuguesa reopens its doors.
On May 12 (Tuesday), the stores at Rua Anchieta (Lisbon) and Rua Cândido dos Reis (Porto) will reopen with new opening hours (from 11 am to 5.30 pm* from Monday to Saturday) and reduced capacity so that you may visit us in complete safety.

During July, August and September of 2019, we will disclose the artist's works (from illustration to painting, embroidery or ceramics), tell some of her personal stories that intersect with the history of Portugal in the 20th century and reveal the details of the passionate research that lead us to the objects that we created from this enormous inspiration. In Portuguese Life, the summer of 2019 is the summer of Sarah Affonso, our inspiring muse.
Perfect for Spring, and why not in preparation of Summer? This way you won't be missing any of the warm weather essentials: oxheart tomatoes, say, or Ribatejo white melon. “Sementes com História” (“seeds with a history”), with or without the tote bag and crop calendar kit, have arrived in A Vida Portuguesa stores. Biological and biodynamic, “a treasury of the life and knowledge of generations upon generations who strove to preserve and enhance them.”
