The products in the shop are made at Herdade das Jans along the River Tejo in northern Alentejo. According the HdJ website, Jans are “…invisible women who knit very thin linens without knots.” Well, the Jans must be very busy, because they have produced a large variety of beautiful one-of-a-kind products. In actuality, the Jans at the Herdade are invited artists applying their knowledge of traditional craftsmanship to products of contemporary design for a new generation.
