The idea behind Mateus took shape over the course of several years. Portuguese fashion-model-turned-mom Teresa Mateus Lundahl saw design trends shifting in her adopted country Sweden. Colors and patterns began to make inroads into Swedish homes – and she saw opportunity.
Why not bring together the best of both of her worlds? Why not fuse traditional Portuguese ceramic craftsmanship, Swedish design and contemporary fashion trends into quality products that celebrate the love of life?
With confident resolve, Teresa set off on a never-ending journey called Mateus. Drawing on the old and the new. Blending southern European artisanry with northern styles. Constantly reinventing colors, shapes and patterns to maximize appeal and, ultimately, to celebrate the joy of being together.
