Legacy and Client’s Satisfaction

With all the experience in textiles business and answering the needs of the Portuguese and European markets, the hosiery company was created in 1966 in Braga where, some years later, opened the first shop under the brand “Pedemeia”. Nowadays, we have 26 stores in Portugal and Spain, located on premium shopping streets, in some of the most important cities of the country. This allows us to create a unique connection with each client ... We take note of the likes and dislikes, tastes, opinions, as well as criticisms ... And all this learning, allows us to keep evolving as a company, as well as keep up with the interests of the public.

Design was not forgotten throughout the years. We have the most sophisticated hardware and software operated by a skilled team of artists, in cooperation with stylists. This keeps us as leaders in current fashion trends.
