It's an enormous pleasure being here making the 1st post on the Portuguese Etsy team's blog.
The PTteam is a team on Etsy from around the world, gathered to love Portugal.
The leadership is composed by the Captain (fricdementol) and 3 leaders (lacunawork , miriam and nanouke).
Our team includes a variety of gorgeous, quality handmade works from several categories and we also have some superb vintage shops.
We are very happy and pleased with the creativity and every fabulous shop on our team and we'll work together to serve the best interests of the teammates and to improve our business.
Miriam made our logo, it couldn't be better, fresh and straight!
It has a touch of the Portuguese flag's colors and the number 560, an identity.
560 is the 'International Article Number' barcode for Portugal.
Almost every Portuguese product begins with those numbers.
The Movimento 560 (560 Movement) was born in 2005, an independent online project from 3 young university students, and wants to value the Portuguese products by providing information to help the customers identify what is made in Portugal.
They also encourage all of us to be proud of the national productions and to consume mainly Portuguese products, helping the local markets / producers, also the small business and, of course, the health of our economy.
Our team shares the thoughts and totally supports this movement, mostly because the PTteam products are made with Portugal in our hearts!
Go team :)
