In the East of Portugal you can find beautiful handcrafted rugs,
they are called "Mantas Alentejanas".
In the picturesque village Reguengos de Monsaraz,
we visited a small shop which promotes this handcraft.
We spoke to Mizette Nielsen who is working hard to preserve this craft,
see for more information here.
The rugs are sturdy, sustainable and beautifully made in lots of different colour combinations.
I wish we had such a craft in the Netherlands! Maybe I should research that...
In our hotel there were several carpets on the floor, slightly different, but I liked them as well.
