Artidar is a small company whose name (which sounds like “art and give” in Portuguese) happens to be the core of its mission: the art of giving. And what better gift than this timeless artistry in a form you can enjoy every day?
Artidar’s handbags all feature authentic azulejo tiles as their primary subject. When you put on an Artidar handbag, you’re wearing a historical piece of Portuguese art. And there’s a style to suit every taste: from bold prints to ornate drawings illustrating classical scenes, all taken from original hand-painted murals.
Artidar and Iberica both aspire to share azulejo tiles with the world. Printing these tiles on fabric is a fashionable way of preserving these tiles and showcasing some of the prettiest examples. These accessories genuinely combine art and fashion. And as Andy Warhol once said, “Fashion is more art than art is”.
