This collection is the result of a collaboration between Bordallo Pinheiro and the Brazilian NGO Ecoarts Amazônia in the preservation of an environmental, cultural, social and scientific heritage crucial to mankind's future. Each piece was inspired from the very rich local flora and was only possible thanks to intense knowledge sharing with those who live their daily lives in this vibrant mosaic of ecosystems, traditions, colours, sounds and smells that is the Amazon rainforest. Part of the collection's proceeds will go the reforestation of the Amazon area of Mato Grosso, by planting indigenous fruit trees in cities, rural areas and indigenous villages of the region where Ecoarts Amazônia operates.

- About Bordallo Pinheiro:
Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro, one of the most influential people of nineteenth century Portuguese culture, will forever be intimately associated with caricature and artistic ceramics. In 1884, Bordallo began his ceramics production at the Fábrica de Faianças, revealing pieces of great technical, artistic and creative quality.
Adopting a modern and entrepreneurial approach, Bordallo Pinheiro plays an essential role in the revitalization of Portuguese ceramics and of the artistic heritage of its factory.
Bordallo Pinheiro remains faithful to tradition through the use of ancestral manufacture techniques and the naturalistic motifs at the root of the brand. These decorative pieces continue to feed our collective imagination and to take the prestige of Portuguese culture and industry one step further.
