The Portuguese Standard's mission is to affirm authentic design and manufacture Made in Portugal.
Footwear has been our passion for the last 20 years. Having started our careers in London in sales and marketing of branded footwear back in 1996 we have naturally converged in all areas of the business, from design to distribution. We have developed a number of prestigious brands and designers with a diverse range of products and constructions from classic to contemporary.
Our strong and confident personalities are matched to our enthusiasm for all things creative. Many years of working in fashion and a local presence and insider’s knowledge of the local industry have prompted solid relationships with unique manufacturers we've known for many years, so after all these years we've decided to return to our hometown in the north of Portugal and pursue different challenges. Realizing consulting stints with local companies and emerging brands we grew hungry for product again.
The Agency allows us to bring together manufacturers and designers in the quest to develop singular product that pays homage to the distinctive Made in Portugal signatures we valued throughtout the years. We select and work with the best and most adequate manufacturing partners following careful research of the brand's positioning and need in product type and price.
