ART and TRADITION – Monsaraz

Since the beginning of the 19th Century, the factory that produces these traditional blankets in Reguengos de Monsaraz has become part of the culture and most of the patterns and colors used are closely related to Alentejo. Used by the shepherds to protect themselves from the cold, these high-quality, hand-made wool blankets are now pieces of art, embellishing the walls of those who recognize the skills and for those who value tradition.
