About us

Retrosaria (Portuguese for haberdashery) started online in January 2008. In the end of 2009 we opened our shop at Rua do Loreto, in the heart of Lisbon. Rosa Pomar spends her time between the shop, where she teaches most of our classes, and her field research of Portuguese textiles. One of the products of this work is our range of yarns, some of which are handspun by skilled artisans using traditional tools and methods.
