Burel

Ancestral fabric. A brand new Brand.

Fabric made from 100% pure wool, traditionally used by shepherds from the top of the mountains, burel was born in the heart of Serra da Estrela and today is supported by the creativity of the best Portuguese designers.

 

Burel is a Portuguese handmade fabric with the origin in the mountains, made entirely of Wool

After being carded, the wool becomes a wick. The wick is twisted in the spinning and turns into wire. This passes through the warp originating the web. The loom turns the web into a xerga. The xerga passes through the batano and other deals and finally becomes burel.

The Burel is a very durable and versatile fabric to the covers and coats to the rainy days, snow and cold on the mountain, has evolved into countless ideas and design solutions, accompanied by a wide range of textures, patterns and colours.

Mantecas by Burel Factory

A  milestone in the Portuguese wool industry, made from 100% pure wool of Serra da Estrela.

Mantecas is the brand of our blankets, shawls and scarves, which kept some of the mesmerising patterns from the old design books we found in the remains of the factory, upon its recovery. Wool fabrics, made on ancient looms and finished by hand, with or without fringes.

Today, its application is vast, and extended to areas such as fashion and design, with the fabric being used for making coats and many other pieces. A versatility guaranteed by the multiple options of patterns and colours, and by the wool quality, certified by nature.
