An incredible range of speakers have been open to the public, but we’re here to remind you how good this Design and Craftsmanship Summit 2018 is going to be!

Now, it’s time to talk about the ancient crafts that are going to be the spotlight of the luxury and design summit of the year!

 

We’re starting with the traditional art of… Leaf Gilding. One of the tools used in Covet Groups’ Brands, this technique refers to a decorative applique of a fine gold leaf into solid surfaces such as wood, stone or metal to give a thin coating of gold. Although it might seem easy, it’s a very complex technique only used by artisans.

By now, you know that this Luxury Design & Craftsmanship Summit is going to be held in Gondomar, the capital of Filigree. So, it’s rather obvious that there’s going to be a live showcase that will promote this art.

No, onto iconic Portuguese Arts and Crafts. Azulejo and Arraoilos will also be represented in this Summit. Azulejo it’s a form of painted tin-glazed ceramic tilework extremely popular in Portugal.

 

Arraiolos Rugs or Tapestry.  Some of the most traditional Products of Portugal. Inspired by Persian Carpets and consist of rugs made of embroidered wool, this art is exclusively made in a traditional manner in a small town of Portugal.

Another classic art of Portugal is Lace of Bilros. Produced by  –  “the successive crossing or interspersed of textile yarns executed on the pike and with the aid of pins and bobbins.” This textile art form almost went missing but it was revived by the Portuguese Government.

Speaking of textiles arts, Embroidery is another art that is common in Europe. One of the oldest in the world, this Summit you’ll have the first look in live showcases! The perfect place to learn and have fun!
