Greetings to our Vida Bela community!
This week, we’re thrilled to take you on a delightful journey through the rich agricultural landscapes of Portugal, straight from the comfort of your home. How, you may ask? By introducing you to Bordallo Pinheiro's iconic Cabbage Collection!
When we talk about this collection, we aren’t merely discussing another tableware series. No, this collection is a testament to tradition, an homage to the Portuguese countryside, and a fine example of artistry. These carefully crafted pieces carry the essence of Portugal’s rustic charm and its people's profound respect for the land.
Originating in the 19th century, the Cabbage Collection embodies Bordallo Pinheiro's spirit of innovation and craftsmanship. Every item, from plates to serving bowls, mirrors the texture and vibrancy of fresh cabbage leaves. Crafted from high-quality earthenware using traditional pottery techniques, each piece seems to tell a story of past and present, of traditions held dear, and of a deep-rooted love for nature.
In the words of Bordallo Pinheiro, "The dish should tell a story, cause surprise, and provoke emotions". And the Cabbage Collection does just that. It transports you to a journey through idyllic Portuguese countryside, an experience we, at Vida Bela, hope you will cherish.
In the coming week, we'll be sharing more insights into how this collection plays a unique part in representing Portugal's heritage. Stay tuned and immerse yourself in the magic of the Cabbage Collection!
Até breve (see you soon), Melissa & the Vida Bela Team
