Stefanie and Jose Almeida’s philosophical minds, unbridled optimism and creative spirit are at the heart of D’ALMEIDA. The eponymous label is first and foremost a labor of love. The brand’s inception was sparked through a mutual curiosity and an expedition into Jose’s ancestry. Delving further into his family’s deep Northern Portugal roots birthed an intimate relationship with the region’s renowned craftmanship.
The entrepreneurial duo sought to create more than a product. Stefanie and Jose have created an experience where clients can express their inner selves through style to claim their own patch of the world. With help from some of the world’s best artisans, D’ALMEIDA hats empower the wearer to set sail and take on all that life has to offer.
Preserving the traditional craft of hat making
D’ALMEIDA is an ode to Jose and Stefanie’s longstanding family heritage of craftmanship. The village in which their premium fabrics are sourced, and where the team of artisan milliners are situated, is a stone’s throw away from the Almeida clan’s roots.
We thus preserve a traditional craft and a product that is lovingly handmade and carries a unique energy, which is so deeply rooted here in our homeland.
