Our Sustainability & Ethics

sustainable planet
Planet

Know that we make the conscious decision to only use renewable and sustainable fibers woven by our own hands. The reed, our raw material, born wildly in nature without pesticides or human hand every single year.

fair price
Price

Since I was 5 years old I have been working at portuguese reed basketry without receiving a penny. Why the youngest are not interested in crafts and the culture dies in the hands of the oldest? Because it has to be prized for its true value.

workers rights
Workers Rights

With Victoria handmade project, we revolutionized this market just by making it fair: with all the rights of the worker safeguarded, something never before achieved in this ancestral art. We guarantee that we were the first, and the few.

Only in this way we can preserve the culture of this art and transform lives with it.

sustainable materials SUSTAINBALE BRANDS

Noble Fibers, Noble Ways

Reed, An Organic Plant

We deliver a imperfect perfection, as mother nature itself dictates. Our reeds grow up freely in wetlands of Portugal and are picked up by us in the summer once a year, for the whole year. Its original color is a strong green that is dried naturally over the strong summer sun to its cream hue so we can work with it.

Eco-Friendly Leather

The leather we use is of high-quality vegetable tanning. It is genuine. Its treatment process is toxic free and does not release any toxins into the environment. Its fusion is derived from vegetable pigments and other plants that allow a better environmentally friendly finish.

Other Materials

natural pigments
Natural Pigments

From its natural cream color, we dye the reeds from the most colorful to the most neutral! But being a plant, the reed does not adhere to all type of colors. Also this singularity makes that slight differences in shade from reed to reed happens due to its uniqueness.

jute fiber
Jute

Keeping faithful to the ancestral processes, we sew all our baskets with jute, a resistant thread made of natural fibers that is also dyed according to the color of your piece.

Wicker

Although it is popularly common to hear that these baskets are made of wicker, this statement is false! All of our bags are made of reeds, and only the baskets have handles in wicker! Reliable to traditional carrycot, we use wicker to make the wings of the ‘nostalgic baskets’ collections, being also a material from nature resistant to weight and time.

Handmade With Hope

Meticulously handcrafted pieces made with rare and limited-edition fibers that add a proud feeling to your life.

Other important things when comes to take care of your Victoria Handmade bag:

REED
• The reed body is delicate but robust, this means the reed body can endure knocks and bumps but a little extra care is needed when using the bag, just like other material kind of bags - don't forget to use the beeswax here!
• Our baskets have been thoroughly tested over the years to withstand various conditions. The traditional Portuguese basket existed for decades, and has always been used in the most varied conditions and occasions. At Victoria Handmade we keep the ancestral production methods unchanged, so the quality of your piece is of the highest handmade quality.
• 
Our bags are completely waterproof, but we suggest avoiding any heavy rain, like you should do in any kind of bag.
• Being a plant, the reed does not adhere to all type of colors. This singularity makes that slight differences in shade from reed to reed happens due to its uniqueness.

ECO-FRIENDLY LEATHER:
• Our vegetable tanned leather shows off the material in its most natural state, maintaining natural flaws and markings. We select carefully the most beautiful ones. 
• With proper care, vegetable tanned leather can last many decades. Every few months we recommend applying a little of beeswax (we offer it!) to the leather and rubbing it with a soft cloth (as well as in the reed, don't forget that!).

STORAGE
• While not in use, keep your bag away from closed cupboards and poor ventilated rooms. Store it in it's own sac on a dry place where circulates air (eg. hanging on a hanger, open cupboards - never closed -, etc.) Before storage it, apply a good layer of beeswax across the piece with a cloth.

Two bags are never equal, this is where the essence of each piece persists, unique made especially for you. We hope you enjoy every detail of your victoria handmade, knowing that we work with all the care and dedication to deliver you the highest quality craftsmanship.

Other important things when comes to take care of your Victoria Handmade bag:

REED
• The reed body is delicate but robust, this means the reed body can endure knocks and bumps but a little extra care is needed when using the bag, just like other material kind of bags - don't forget to use the beeswax here!
• Our baskets have been thoroughly tested over the years to withstand various conditions. The traditional Portuguese basket existed for decades, and has always been used in the most varied conditions and occasions. At Victoria Handmade we keep the ancestral production methods unchanged, so the quality of your piece is of the highest handmade quality.
• 
Our bags are completely waterproof, but we suggest avoiding any heavy rain, like you should do in any kind of bag.
• Being a plant, the reed does not adhere to all type of colors. This singularity makes that slight differences in shade from reed to reed happens due to its uniqueness.

ECO-FRIENDLY LEATHER:
• Our vegetable tanned leather shows off the material in its most natural state, maintaining natural flaws and markings. We select carefully the most beautiful ones. 
• With proper care, vegetable tanned leather can last many decades. Every few months we recommend applying a little of beeswax (we offer it!) to the leather and rubbing it with a soft cloth (as well as in the reed, don't forget that!).

STORAGE
• While not in use, keep your bag away from closed cupboards and poor ventilated rooms. Store it in it's own sac on a dry place where circulates air (eg. hanging on a hanger, open cupboards - never closed -, etc.) Before storage it, apply a good layer of beeswax across the piece with a cloth.

Two bags are never equal, this is where the essence of each piece persists, unique made especially for you. We hope you enjoy every detail of your victoria handmade, knowing that we work with all the care and dedication to deliver you the highest quality craftsmanship.
