The crafts in Guimarães currently materialize the memory of certain activities that were once part of the local industrial scene.

From the economic and industrial history of Guimarães, the artisan techniques applied in the production of embroidery, in weaving, in tanning and finishing leather, in the manufacture of clothing and in the manufacture of footwear, in wood carving and cooperage, in iron work, in tin and cutlery and in the making of miniatures.

Despite the natural differences, the group of handicrafts has a common objective: to project tradition in the future and, without sacrificing it, adapt it to contemporary uses. Guimarães handicrafts combine the secular authenticity of artisanal manufacturing with shapes that attract and satisfy the needs of a demanding and knowledgeable consumer.
