Lipscani, a Portuguese brand established in 2010, focuses on producing beautiful handcrafted bags and shawls. Using their own exclusively hand drawn textiles to make these unique and much sought after accessories, the brand is growing from strength to strength. The inspiration for these bespoke items, designed by Mariana Pires, comes from the Art Nouveau / Art Deco aesthetic and the beauty of the architechture of the early 20th century combined with the culture and hertitage of Portugal. The name "Lipscani" is of Romanian origin and refers to a commercial street in the city of Bucharest, an area filled with Art Nouveau buildings, and where the designer lived for some time, hence the name. Lipscani was founded by Mariana's mother, Gina Pires, as a brand of exclusive jewellery. She produces Lipscani's exclusive jewellery items and is specialized in working with filigree and semi-precious stones. You can vist the Lipscani store on the Comercial Street in the centre of Portimão.
