Burel, ancestral knowledge at the service of comfort

BUREL IS A PORTUGUESE HANDMADE FABRIC WITH THE ORIGIN IN THE MOUNTAINS, MADE ENTIRELY OF WOOL


After being carded, the wool becomes a wick. The wick is twisted in the spinning and turns into wire. This passes through the warp originating the web. The loom turns the web into a xerga. The xerga passes through the batano and other deals and finally becomes burel.
