Natalie and Dinah had been brainstorming for several months trying to come up with a business enterprise that was lacking in the area. Over lunch and several glasses of wine one afternoon in November 2011, the idea of a Home Textile store was launched.
Over the following months a massive product and premise search was started. While sourcing products they realised that there was a wealth of beautiful and quality National Products available.
Happy to represent these, the idea of keeping the store "Made in Portugal" was formed. A suitable location was found, the interior aspects of the shop were designed and manufactured, a name/logo was thought of and of course the beaurocracy involved in setting up a business was dealt with.
In just 4 months they were ready to open the doors of the new store - Casa Lusa, Texteis Lar, Made in Portugal.
The Inauguration night was held on the 1st March 2012 and the shop opened its doors for business 2nd March 2012.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the help of their families and friends.
Thank you all!
This is just the beginning......,
