Toino Abel was started by Nuno Henriques with the aim to preserve the tradition of Portuguese reed basket weaving. Nuno’s great-grandfather José began his basket-weaving business in the small Portuguese village of Castanheira, and today the business is still run by Nuno’s grand-aunt and employs 6 weavers who make the baskets by hand just as they have always been made.
