Ecolã it’s the oldest handmade certificated company. Since 1925 (familiar third generation) and located in Manteigas, Serra da Estrela, follows all the wool (from the local sheep) cycle, since the shearing until the final product, under an ecological and sustainable basis. Using the traditional processes, we keep an cultural heritage associated to the design. Burel is a 100% sheep’s wool fabric of medieval origin which has always been associated with the Serra da Estrela, the mountain, the shepherds and their capes. The authenticity of Burel results from a sequence of specific operations in the manufacturing process. After being sheared, washed spun and woven on the loom the wool is “trodden“ in a machine called stomper that beats and scalds the wool, transforming the fabric into sackcloth, making it tighter, tough and waterproof. With many years of experience we are eager and able to respond to our clients’ needs in a language that speaks all colours and is ready for all challenges.
