Second-generation factory owner Martins inherited his father’s fabric mill at early age. The mill and the sewing factory currently employ a total of 70 textile engineers and seamstresses in two factories in Reguenga, Portugal. Together they house decades of experience in premium fabric development and garment manufacturing. During one of our first meetings we asked Martins what, after so many years in the business, fueles his passion for textiles. The answer was short and concise: Continuous improvement.
