Portuur means “deelgenoot”, “maat” or “gelyke” in Afrikaans which translates to “partner” or “peer”.
To me it means making design and beauty your partner, making it part of your every moment and thought. Basically making rad things and then sharing it with people of the same “portuur”.
Our original collection of textiles focuses on the artistic process. Using traditional textile techniques and hand painting, we create products that are both luxurious and relaxed. These first stages of creating, often lost in the development of today’s commercial products, are an integral part of our process. We aim to bring this care and creativity back by preserving the essence of this process in our products. We use feather and down inserts as they are luxurious and last for years.
