Carapau Portuguese products are created and designed by Rita Faria and Tiago Couto, two Portuguese graphic designers who decided to create a project in parallel with their graphic design studio. “More than a toy, they are an object of decoration,” explains Rita Faria. Hence they began by showing their work at international decoration fairs such as Maison et Objet (Paris), Ny Now (New York), and Top Drawer (London).
Designed and handmade with care in Portugal
Carapau Portuguese Products create handcrafted home products with high-quality and ecological traditional Portuguese raw materials which combine ancient erudition with a contemporary design. All products are handmade in their studio in Oporto, Portugal.
We care about wildlife
We are in the midst of a conservation crisis that is occurring around the globe resulting in the catastrophic loss of countless species and the accelerated destruction of wild landscapes.
The more we learned, the more we were inspired to do something about it. We believe social businesses can help change the world.
We decided to make a commitment to help wildlife conservation. With every Carapau animal purchase, we donate 3% to wildlife conservation organisations.
