Alma means soul in Portuguese. The creators of ‘ALMA’ — Christine, Nancy, and BJ — were brought together by their genuine love and appreciation of the artisanship of their family’s native Portugal. They were born and raised in Toronto with strong ties to Portugal, and with such a serious pride in their heritage, this is the soul of Portugal. ‘ALMA’ brings to Canadians a part of the soul of Portugal. Arraiolos — the style of rug — has been handmade by needlepoint since the Middle Ages in the small town of Arraiolos in the south of Portugal. Designed by partner and interior designer, Christine Vieira; designs are inspired by both Canada and Portugal alike but stylistically are graphic and modern, creating a fresh and fun take on an age-old tradition.
