Taking into account the actual situation of Portugal, our Atelier & Showroom is right now closed. My Sister Carla is at home and my daughter and I are working from home: where I actually started the Victoria Handmade project well before I had a store. I can't let my hands down now because I don't know if in 15 days, 1 month or 2 I will be able to open the doors of this project again ... it's the reality. Therefore, the online store is operational and matching the shipping dates so that your Victoria Handmade bags reach your hands safely and we keep this tradition alive.

In way we can help you and give you all our positive energies, we created a rubric ''what's in my bag'' where every day we share a tip about what you can do at home and get out of this situation stronger than when you entered. Follow us on our instagram (find out everything on our highlights) and facebook.
I wish you all the best, soon we will be able to be together again because everything will be fine.

Kindly, Esperança Vitória - CEO
