Perry Sampaio
Beatriz Tasso de Sousa Perry Sampaio started her weaving workshop at her Prado estate in the 1940s, where she taught people to weave her own designs in linen.

She displayed her collections every year in the summer in the seaside town of Figueira da Foz and then exported her creations to the many families living in Portuguese-speaking African countries.

The need to show her designs to larger audiences led Beatriz Perry Sampaio to set up Perry Sampaio in 1960, and 574 Rua Campo Alegre, in Porto, proved to be the ideal location to start her new business.
In the early 1970s, the need for a larger exhibition space encouraged the founder and her daughter, Nininha Perry Sampaio, to find another location on the same street in Porto, where they could preserve the closed-door concept of privacy.
In 1974, Perry Sampaio moved to 713 Rua Campo Alegre, where it is still based, and extended its range to lamps, lampshades, baby products and christening gowns.

The embroidered patterns, their uniqueness, the personalised service and the founder’s charisma attract customers from the north to the south of Portugal, and have become a reference for those who wish to prepare a wedding list or create a layette for their children.

Many international personalities from the worlds of art and politics, as well as members of several royal houses, visit Perry Sampaio during their visits to Porto to place their customised orders.
Perry Sampaio strengthened its presence in the interior design business by establishing partnerships with the best designers in the market, and launched a new activity segment in tailor-made curtains.

In 1994, it was granted the distinction “Traditional Shop” by the Ministry for Industry and Trade.
Adapting to the demands of everyday life in the new millennium, Perry Sampaio decided to introduce new fabrics with new finishes into its collections that are practical and easily washable for everyday use.
The traditions that Perry Sampaio wishes to preserve include: continuing to offer exclusive products, creating embroideries that can be handed down over generations and providing a personalised service to customers in the privacy of a family environment.

The expertise of generations will continue to meet the desires of the children and grandchildren of our first customers, while welcoming new clients in search of products with… “soul”.
