The meaning of our brand name
Our brand is inspired by Portuguese architecture and one of its most identifiable characteristic, namely wall tiles.
In the Portuguese language the word tile translates to azulejo, whose etymological root is the Arabic word azzelij (or al zuleycha, al zulaco) which means "small polished stone".
Portugal was part of the al-Andalus territory for almost eight hundred years, the arab conquered the territory to the Visigoths around the year 711.
The Arab heritage that can still be seen in Portugal in our architecture, language and food.
