Handcrafting the Portuguese soul is our drive and we make it happen supplying unique eco-friendly craft supplies, inspiring DIY projects, teaching traditional techniques and handcrafting meaningful gifts.

Folclore works with local suppliers, having a large selection of cork materials, embroidery supplies, burel, vintage ribbons and yarns. The sustainability demands challenged us to get more involved in production and to create our own cork products, like cotton backed cork fabric and cork buttons and beads.

In every step we take we want to show that Portugal is the place for diversity, tradition and quality when it comes to craft supplies.

Textiles

Portuguese Traditional Textiles

Portugal is a country where textile production is a very traditional and long lasting activity. Our textile range includes a cotton fabric inspired by regional scarfs and a unique 100% boiled wool fabric, burel.

We offer colorful traditional patterned fabrics inspired by Portuguese folklore costumes with bright colors that can be used in your sewing projects to make bags, cloth, home decor projects or to use as a scarf.

Burel is a 100% boiled wool craft fabric which production follows long lasting traditions. It’s a woven and felted fabric, becoming more compact and resistant than a common wool cloth and very easy working because there is no need to finish edges once they won't unravel. Burel is waterproof, fire resistant and one of the most resistant fabrics in the world.

It's a very versatile material that can be used in jackets, capes, cardigans, bags, backpacks, belts, berets and necklaces. Its durability makes it also perfect for blankets, rugs, pillows and other home decor projects.
