1.Inspired by the love verses that the girls of the Minho region embroidered on handkerchiefs for their boyfriends, this sardine represents the promise of endless love. The Sweetheart Handkerchiefs are recognised by their strong colours, love symbols and spelling errors. It was a romantic allurement ritual where the sewing needles were the keyboard at that time.
2.A simple equation for a world that increasingly needs empathy and love. The sardine has already found its own. And you? Have you found yours?
3.Careful picking up this sardine: it's piping hot and ready to serve! For the epicure or those who actually prefer a sardine on bread while marching on the Popular Parade, it's a fine accompaniment to any festivity. And that's how Lisbon marches on, looking after herself. Popular, like canned sardines. But really fresh!
4.This Sardine was born from predominant topics in the news, such as the economic crisis and emigration. An analogy with airmail envelopes and messages that emigrants use to send to their families. The image on the back is from the transport network of Bordeaux, where I hoped that had the chance to stay and pursue my career.
5.The cantaloupe is a perfect example on how the creative non-conformity and functionality do not exclude themselves. We continued the artist’s work, creating pieces where nature, humour and joy are served at the table.
6.This laid-back sardine incorporates a play on words. Or, looking closer, maybe not
7.Tóni is a Sardine prone to gallantry, born as a tribute to the Lisbon hustler. A raunchy pushy sort, with a loud mouth and fire in his belly, Tón i makes a living out of odd jobs. Up one street, down an alleyway, he walks nimble, with a watchful thirsty eye, while distributing flirts to the girls that pass by – “Eh carapau” “hey mackerel!”
