Araucana was founded by its managing partner, Alexandra Alves - who, after several years of working as an industrial director, felt an enormous desire to change life and surround herself, in her words, with "beautiful objects". She's always liked clothes and fashion, especially the ones with design and refinement. A trip to Bali and the empathy with a French brand linked to environmental sustainability were the motto to "take the leap" and radically change her days! Araucana's mission is to fill Porto with beautiful, elegant, and refined women who know how to dress with art, but have a strong ethical and environmental conscience. In this space dedicated to the slow fashion concept, we can find exclusive pieces by national designers, with special relevance to the extraordinary brand “Pé de Chumbo”, and international ones, like the young Colombian “Carolina Ronderos”. The name Araucana comes from a poem by Pablo Neruda:
"Perhaps you did not know, Araucana,
that before I loved you, I forgot your kisses
my heart was left remembering your mouth (...)".
