Goods for the home, crafted in Portugal.
Based in Brooklyn, LUSITANO is a window into the authentic contemporary craft and creativity of Portugal in goods for the home.
A collection of modern home decor and handcrafted gifts, each piece is crafted ethically by family-owned studios and solo artisans in Portugal. We are proud to be part of this community of Portuguese artisans, helping to keep craft strong.
We celebrate our Portuguese heritage, taking our name from the ancient warrior tribes that all Portuguese descend from - The Lusitanos were known in the BC Era as superior makers and the most defiant tribe to the Roman Empire. This warrior spirit and pride lives on, as to this day to be Portuguese is to be Lusitano.

A Portuguese expat now living in Brooklyn, Carlos began his career in contemporary art galleries and hasn't left the NY design world since. From joining Jonathan Adler’s world of ‘happy chic’ to the luxury digital agencies where he worked with high-end fashion, home and beauty businesses, he's bridged his passion for design, technology and business throughout.
After experiencing the inner workings of these successful design businesses and tapping into a family history of entrepreneurship, he's thrilled to be on this next journey with LUSITANO.
