A record in the history of the village of Manteigas and of the Portuguese wool

It all began in 1947, the year that saw the birth of Lanificio Império, the most important wool mill in the region. In 2010 we went through a long process of recovering a heritage that threatened to disappear, always with the concern of keeping the knowledge and the ancestral machinery and not letting the story die. The factory would become Burel Factory, the Burel Mountain Originals factory. A space for design and production of burel, the most traditional wool fabric in the local wool industry, now used in a very different and innovative way. It keeps producing today using the same machines and traditional equipment from the time the industry was still made by hand, thus ensuring the production of unique, different and high-quality fabrics, preserving the past, reinterpreting it and making it into a story of the future. In its interior we can still also a shop where you can get what you have just seen being produced.
