A Vida Portuguesa specialises in retro Portuguese products that have kept their original packaging designs and are still made according to traditional processes.
Owned by journalist Catarina Portas, A Vida Portuguesa stocks food, homewares, stationery and cosmetics from traditional Portuguese brands, including Zelly flour, Emílio Braga stationery and Viúva Lamego tiles.
The company’s stores in Lisbon and Porto are the perfect destination for those in search of stylish souvenirs.
We’re particularly fond of the handmade Ach Brito and Claus Porto soaps, which have retained their colourful vintage packaging, as well as the store’s selection of decorative items carved out of tin, a traditional Portuguese craft.
