The finest Portuguese textiles, made sustainable
A new concept for a new age
The four elements find their inspiration in nature: Fire, air, water, and earth. By rooting what we do in knowledge that is both steeped in tradition and inspired by our planet, we seek to find a future for all of us.
A product made with the environment in mind.
We are creating the finest textiles in the world. We are cutting no corners. And we are making it sustainable.
In the four elements are the keys to our inspiration. They stem from philosophy and history, and they make sure we never lose sight of our purpose.
This is a fight we must win. And we must do it together.
What do we do?
We make the finest towels, using some of the best raw materials on the market. Our craftsmen are some of the most gifted on the planet. We have been doing it since 1977 from Northern Portugal, a region renowned globally for its reputation in textiles. Sustainability has been one of our concerns for a long while now, and we have accrued both the knowledge and the skills to bring our craft into the 21st Century. Quattro Elementi is a new concept, fully dedicated to protecting the environment without losing a single bit of what made us great in the first place.
How do we do it?
Our inspiration comes from Aristotle:
Aristotle related each of the four elements to two of the four sensible qualities:
• Fire is both hot and dry.
• Air is both hot and wet (for air is like vapor, ἀτμὶς).
• Water is both cold and wet.
• Earth is both cold and dry.
This is our inspiration. On these stepping stones, we will build.
This is our promise
But we must do it together. To achieve our goals and truly make a difference, we can’t just be one factory, one town, one place in this whole wide world.
This is a much about product as it is about sharing the Quattro Elementi message.
Can we count on you?
