For several years sewing was part of the education of youngsters in Loulé. To learn how to make clothing, to embroider or to patch was exclusive to women. In this activity, led by our partner “Linhas e Livros”, participants will have the opportunity to know pieces of the history of Loulé´s seamstresses, their lives and the importance of their activity for the family economy. In a second phase, knowledge is transmitted through the sewing techniques of producing a Taleigo, a traditional bag used to carry goods or store bread or figs. Finally, participants will take their own Taleigos, as well as the new knowledge that can be applied every day.
