Welcome to Shop Small Saturday, a weekly feature where we celebrate our community of independent boutiques, from Bath to Berlin.
Located within the city’s bustling industrial shopping complex (you’ll find them in Libson’s Lx Factory), Pura Cal is an eclectic hub of European design. Each piece is carefully selected by owners and interior designers João Vilela and Tiago Rodrigues. Their ethos is to focus on tradition, and considered manufacturing processes, so expect everything from traditional Portuguese pottery, to tableware from cult designers such as Bordallo Pinhiero and Costa Nova. Pura Cal is awash with colour, culture and community spirit.
Take a virtual trip with us to the Lisbon coastline as we chat to co-founder João who was accompanied by his sleepy whippet Aurora, all about Pura Cal’s passion for supporting independent artists from across the country.
