Dedal is a design publishing house that makes smart homeware for happy homes using natural raw materials.

Founded by Patrícia Valinho, the brand seeks to promote meaningful and memorable moments in people’s daily routines with unique and useful objects.

Dedal’s commitment is to preserve Portuguese manufacturing skills by supporting local businesses while empowering young designers.

The current collection was produced with socially responsible buyers in mind, focusing on two social editions that support local NGO’s. Dedal believes that conscious consumers can actively contribute to a better world.

The word ‘dedal’ is the acronym of Developing Design and Local economies, meaning thimble in Portuguese (the cap used to protect the end of the finger when sewing).
