Our Story

The BrazGil Studio is a family manufacturing enterprise, which bet upon throughout since its foundation the development of an own identity in the artistic approach of Portuguese historical and cultural themes.

From concept to product

The passion for finesse and the love for the detail are carried out through the conception of each piece until the final stage of the production. Nature is the key theme in the great majority of lines launched by the BrazGil Studio , portrayed mostly through Portuguese fauna and flora.

The Braz Gil family has been in porcelain manufacturing for two generations, bet upon the development of a family enterprise with a manufactured status, having been Joaquim Braz Gil the creator. The cradle of this family tradition is the magnificent house designed by the architect Raul Lino, located in Caldas da Rainha, which has already witnessed the birth of the third generation of future ceramists who will ensure the project’s continuation.
