The historic embroidery factory “Bordal”, located in the emblematic Street of Fernao de Ornelas, went through construction works to make several improvements. The works included the creation of “Historic route of Madeira Embroidery” that is now available to visitors. In this historic route Madeira Embroidery’s fans can see pictures, belonging to the Photography Museum Vicente’s, that show all the production processes from the old factories. In exhibit there are also several embroidery pieces, documents, registry books and a sample of the embroideries made by “Bordal” since its was established in 1962. With more than 150 years of history, the production process of Madeira Embroidery keeps its authenticity, being totally handicraft and high quality, as you can see by yourself when visiting the factory. Other Embroidery regional houses keep this secular tradition that makes the joy and appreciation of its clients all around the world.
