Over an almost 2-year period, Marta and Cristina met regularly on train journeys between Porto and Aveiro. During these trips they discussed ideas, projects, dreams and their keen interest to develop (discover and valorise) Portuguese products. Their ideas evolved into rough plans, which in turn became a business plan. After a few more kilometres along Portugal’s roads and railways… “Wow! I think this is really it!”.
Lusa Mater was born – with the aim of offering a broad range of Portuguese brands and creators, thus providing a comprehensive view of all that is “made in Portugal” – featuring traditional brands, new creators and new projects, on the same platform.
“We work together with our suppliers
with a common purpose: value the portuguese production”

She’s a restless dreamer! She lives in the future, without forgetting the past – but where she’s truly happy is in the present. She can’t imagine a life without discovery and amazement…without people, stories and Excel! A graduate of Engineering and Management, she finally figured discovered how to place her training and experience at the service of a dream: constant discovery and valorisation of Portuguese creativity, quality and traditions. Who ever said that Portugal is a small country? There are always new roads, products, creators, craftsmen, lives and techniques to discover… every day!
