wow there seems to be some seriously cool stuff coming out of Portugal lately. i recently featured Portuguese brands SUL and Nomad, now À Capucha! is the latest to add to that list. i mean, something that has an exclamation mark in its actual name has to be good, right? right!

À Capucha! is recreating the capucha, a traditional Portuguese garment, used by shepherds and farmers. the brand forms part of design consultancy Estufa, and was born to explore the convergence of design and manufacturing.

The “Capucha” is a traditional Portuguese garment, used by shepherds and farmers. it is made of burel (100% wool) and is impermeable. Our capuchas are handmade by the artisans of remote villages, who still have secrets and unique ways of manufacturing. In this project, we commit ourselves not to let the portuguese artisanal techniques disappear, by contributing to a sustainable production and by protecting a heritage that makes us unique and timeless.

they have a beautifully designed website & online shop – go check it out!

    Love this….so practical for my particular climate. Off topic….I took the opportunity to view Nomad, which I had somehow missed before…and the website does exist anymore….have they crashed and burned? (How sad if they did they are fabulous) or just relocated? do you have an email you can check for us? I would buy them like crazy.

  4. These look so cozy! Too bad it’s like an oven in LA right now…maybe in December I will be able to think about coats without sweating.
