Bioco Tradition

“Bioco” was a mythical Algarvian costume from the 17th century, in the reign of D. João IV.
At the end of the 19th century the use of it was banned from being worn on the streets and temples, as it hid the identity of who wearer. The passion for our tradition and identity has led us to recreate and design, this costume adapting it to the modern woman who has a passion for life. The passion for tradition and for our identity led us to recreate design products with history and identity, adapting them to today people passionate for life.
The "Bioco Tradition" goal is to bring and adapt products of the past to today and revive emotions.
