The “Teresa Alecrim” brand ‘came as a result of products’ collection by Teresa Carrusca. The first store was established in 1981, in Alvalade neighborhood (Lisbon).
It was an innovative concept. Teresa Alecrim showed that a brand could be loyal to it’s tradition while at the same time be an example of innovation and creativity.
In three years, Teresa Alecrim grew. It opened a store in Chiado, the heart of Lisbon and another in Amoreiras a year later.
Staying faithful to her vision, Teresa Carrusca resisted the pressure to expand and build a franchise. The spotlight was on the new shops and the new collection of baby clothes.
The brand “Teresa Alecrim” successfully expanded to the United States and Brasil
From France to Belgium, through Spain, Denmark, Italy, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Teresa Alecrim found supporters in any country and proved up to the challenge of expansion. Lisbon was not forgotten. The shop in Avenida de Roma was inaugurated and had the cooperation of the Architect Miguel Arruda and his characteristic modern design.
