YOURS Brand Identity

The history of YOURS brand identity is quite unique. The project began on a trip to India in 2008, more precisely at Hotel Yogi, a guesthouse in Jodhpur after a simple question –“and what if we did a hostel like this in our hometown, wouldn’t you like that?”. And the idea behind the brand identity sprung in such a unique place that combines harmony of culture, respect and religiousness. To further add special concepts to the aforementioned ones and conciliating our idea of a business and delivery, and we added the following factors: sharing and the satisfaction to prepare something special for others. Finally, we spiced our project with the natural affection and hospitality that characterizes the Portuguese people. The spirit YOURS emerged. The idea was to build a Guesthouse, an atelier (shop) and a kind of a restaurant. Our goal is to personalize each guest holidays as much as possible. We needed a logo that could stamp the three elements by changing a small detail on the brand identity. To materialize our concept we envisioned the design of a trade image that translated this spirit, and thought of the Lotus Flower that symbolizes our principles. We then started to […]

Free Stitching – Handmade by Yours

I like drawing, sewing and embroidering with free stitching. Telling a story by using pieces of colored fabrics and using the black free stitching to mark these characters. There are already a few stories that I have told and others i am about to tell through free stitching! Nothing too perfect because the drawing I want is free, spontaneous, almost like a sketch. And then I sew these pieces together. There are so many possibilities! Here are some of them. Hope you like it! photos: © luísa amorim For more information and to order please feel free to send an email to: luisa.amorim@yoursporto.com

Threads and Fabrics

There is nothing better than walking tucked between threads and fabrics on a haberdashery in Porto’ city center, or spend hours on the Internet discover the latest trends from Amy Butler, the Free Spirits or Kokka. I’ve always liked buttons and “fitilhos”, English embroidery, sewing machines and “chitas” from Alcobaça. It  makes remember me to my Grandmother’s house in Redondo – Alentejo. The cool breeze felt indoors on sunny and scorching summer afternoons, the smell so characteristic of the chests opened where linen sheets and the blankets were placed, and a nice lunch in the late afternoon with homemade bread with butter and lemonade! I think the love to “create” come from my maternal grandmother who had some ideas “out of the box” for those times.  After some research, a sewing machine (a gift from my husband) and some “sewing ” experiences  offered with great affection to my friends, the challenge has been launched! What if you have more free time why not do something that makes you truly happy? This was the beginning of Yours Store – Handmade!
