What happens when two best friends have a shared passion for handbags and fashion? They start a business together! That’s what happened with Maria/Maleta at least. Friends since 1998, co-founders Ana Neto and Daniela Marques, design high-end Portuguese-made leather bags and accessories. The designs of each product allows the women to embrace their styles, which means you get a good that’s not only handmade in Portugal but is also crafted with care and love.
