The leather was in the genes of Ruth Vieira. Her grandfather, António, started (in 1935, when he was only 14 years old) in one of the most ancient practices that Mankind can remember: to work the fur. The raw material, of high quality, was available nearby, in the Natural Park of Serra de Aires and Candeeiros, and he claimed the use of ancient treatment technics and manufacture, with the greatest respect for the surrounding environment.
Fast forward to the present day: Ruth Vieira studied fashion, worked in the textile industry and met José Lima, who was passionate about bicycles and their accessories. Together they founded, in 2012, the Ideal co. They adopted "Living Heritage" as their slogan, as a way of honoring and maintain the existence of her family's heritage. And continued to use the best Portuguese leathers applied to manufacturing bags, knapsacks, covers for tablets and mobile phones, bicycle accessories, stationary and many other articles. All handmade and signed by the artisan who makes it. A legacy that endures, applied to modern times.
