O Cactuu was born to show that beauty can rise even from difficult times: the brand was created by Cláudia and Filipe in 2020, as a way to express through art and decoration the search for comfort and well-being amid the isolation imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
O Cactuu is a brand of interior decoration that combines the tradition and mastery of Portuguese craftsmanship with contemporary, authentic, and minimalist designs.
A Note From The Founders
Claudia & Filipe
Through Portuguese art, made by hand or within the family, we transform interior spaces into true homes. Our pieces carry with them all the affection, care, and uniqueness brought by the handmade touch.
All our designs are created with quality and durability in mind, as well as awareness regarding the preservation of the planet. “Buy better, keep forever!”
Honouring our traditions, we challenge ourselves to shape the future and take pride in creating ceramic and home textile products based on core values to O Cactuu.
O Cactuu Core Values
Tradition - We keep alive the tradition of Portuguese craftsmanship and art. All our ceramics are 100% handmade and our textiles are produced locally within the family.
Sustainability - We care about the environment. That is why we say no to plastic and reduce our carbon footprint with the use of handcrafted processes that use less energy and natural resources. We use 100% recyclable packaging in all our products, and in textiles we invest in eco-friendly fabrics that reduce environmental impact.
Quality - We always value the quality and durability of our pieces. We want them to be part of our clients' history, always maintaining their functionality and visual aspect.
Exclusivity - Our products are made in a limited and exclusive way in order to protect our traditional processes and maintain the quality and uniqueness of each piece.
