Named after a unique Portuguese word that roughly translates as ‘longing’ or ‘the love that remains’, Saudade is the result  of over 20 years of work by Pedro da Costa Felgueiras. The handmade products he sources – from jewellery to ceramics, tiles to textiles – are selected for the artisanal traditions they keep alive, while his contemporary eye helps him to present them in a modern context through a series of pop-up events and concessions.

Pedro may be longing for traditions that seem lost to the modern world, but his extraordinary curation of these treasured objects means he is also ensuring they remain in the here and now for generations to come.
