Inspired by the book "Viagens Philosophicas" (philosophical voyages) by the naturalist Alexandre Rodrigues Ferreira, as well as by the fauna, flora and people of today's Amazōnia, this collection, which was developed in partnership with Ecoarts Amazōnia, gathers all of the group’s brands for the first time, namely Vista Alegre, Casa Alegre and Bordallo Pinheiro. Featuring over 70 porcelain, earthenware, stoneware, glass and crystal pieces, part of the revenue from the collection will be channeled back into the reforestation of the Amazon's Mato Grosso area through the planting of native fruit trees, which will help preserve an environmental, cultural, social and scientific heritage that is crucial to the future of humankind.

- About Vista Alegre:
Founded in 1824, the Vista Alegre Porcelain Factory was the first industrial unit dedicated to producing porcelain in Portugal. Over its long history, the Vista Alegre brand, which has always been intimately associated with Portuguese history and culture, has achieved unparalleled recognition and visibility.
Public recognition, perceived quality and the company’s investment in innovation and design have turned Vista Alegre into one of the very few Portuguese luxury brands to achieve iconic status on a worldwide level.
Having adopted rigorousness, sophistication and versatility as its core values, Vista Alegre has been able to harmoniously combine tradition and modernity, and remain attuned to cultural trends. Vista Alegre products reflect the most recent design trends and are manufactured according to the highest quality and functionality standards. In addition to using state-of-the-art production techniques, the porcelain factory also employs 17 hand painters, who are responsible for decorating the pieces produced.
