Mada In Lisbon® was born in 2015, envisioned by myself, Inês Gil Forte, and shared from my home-based (Lisbon, Portugal) to parents and children across the world.
I'm the mother of two lovely and beautiful children Madalena and Joaquim.
Once I was a famous Nutritionist, with regular appearances on TV networks, leading newspapers and magazines started to feel unhappy with my work and wanted to change.
But, I started to feel tired and unhappy with my work and wanted to do something completely new and different! I have to confess that sometimes, I need to change.
I created this brand where she can develop and sell the products that I dream and believe, made and produced by the way, I like, and think that all of us deserve!
So, on our products, you can find:
- 100% handmade products,
- 100% made in Portugal,
- 100% developed by us, and when I talk about us, I'm talking, about me, about some designers that have been working with me, the seamstress with whom I use to work to develop some products, the persons from the factory specialized in prints I work and discuss fabrics, prints, sizes and so on.
- All my suppliers, of wood, pillows, boxes, flyers, and so on.
And the photographer with whom I have been working. Rita is just amazing. Believe that photograph and edit our swings can be one of the hardest things in a photographer's life... and babies and kids...
I have learned a lot from all of them. And also with my clients.
Above all, I have been trying to create a brand, with small productions, high quality, with the best supplies, in order to get the pickiest clients satisfied! Do you know who they are? Our babies, toddlers, children, and families, that believe in our work!
Actually, Mada In Lisbon® products reach, regularly, 22 countries (but the number keeps growing, thanks to our loyal customers!). It is a micro-enterprise but with products that can be accepted by all, because we have premium but affordable products, from Portugal to the World, made in a country that is legendary by the textiles' competence and openness to the outside world.
At Mada in Lisbon®, you can have Swings, ArtBibs, Pencil Case, but we are always thinking about new products and accepting new challenges, lots of times asked by our clients and partners.
The goal is to create more useful, practical, and easy-to-carry baby and children articles that are of outstanding high quality (in terms of materials and eco-friendly components), safe, beautiful, unique, hand-made. Far away from the actual offering in most high street shops and outlets…
At Mada In Lisbon®, we develop unique and lovely patterns, trademarked. Around 10% of our sales revenue goes directly into Research and Development. Materials and components are all tested very exhaustively.
The BabySwings have European Certification (CE), by EN 71,1 and 71,2 which is compulsory for toys. Every supplier must oblige to our stringent standards. In a single word: children are safe with us!
MadaInLisbon® - Hand-made, Superior, Unique. For parents that do care and their lovely children.
