The traditions of the peoples around the world reflect the secular culture of their way of life, which throughout the generations have been able to transform the raw materials they had into useful and decorative objects worthy of appreciation and use, either for their originality either by its charm.
The CROÇA furniture pieces created by ALMA de LUCE® are a contemporary and elegant interpretation of the forgotten traditions while reflecting Alma de Luce’s philosophy of challenging the past through the future.
The shepherd's clothing is the intelligent use of the sustainable natural resources, against the storms and jungle, in its habitat (the saw) alone with the cattle, wandering by day, and in the solitude of the night.
The croça was part of the clothing of all the mountain zones, from the north to the south of the country, Portugal, since it constituted an effective protection for the cold and rain. In almost all populations there was a skilled craftsman or artisan who provided the neighbors with that. They were called Croceiros or Croceiras.
