Bordallo Pinheiro


This sardine was not born as she wanted.
She is passionate about Azores, the archipelago of the 9 islands and wanted to become an Azorean.
So she swam and swam: and disguised herself as a whale, a common animal in the Azores.

Sardine Azores: a sardine or a whale?

Shhh! Do not tell this disguise to anyone!

This sardine wanted to be Azorean. And what better way than disguising itself as a whale, an animal inherently connected with the culture of the Azores Archipelago. It doesn't go unnoticed!

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.

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.

design  João Vaz de Carvalho
