This sardine gets away and left to discover new things.
Sailing on all tides towards the future.

Is this sardine our passport to a new world?
Are the other universes a wave away?

In the future, we will find the Sardine Alvim and the conquest of the universe.

This is a futurist sardine that will not consume the bread, as is the tradition, but rather the future. It is a sardine that flies through the universe, a sardine that likes this planet, but dreams of discovering other worlds and their peoples. There is life beyond our own! It is a sardine that flies, and thus escapes the grill.

Each Bordallian sardine is wrapped in a original packaging to simulate a sheet of newspaper, in a throwback to the tradition of the sale of this fish in Lisbon, dating back to the XVIII century, between typical selling sayings, from the fishmongers.

The sardines are made with high quality colors and decals, which allows them to have a very strong, intense and beautifull glow and color.
All the decorating process in each sardine is manual. The decoration is performed by decal process, which takes on average 10 minutes, producing only a few per day.


design Fernando Alvim
