Leitão & Irmão invites you to know more about sustainable luxury shop windows
From September to November, Leitão & Irmão, a Portuguese jewellery shop, invites you to visit the sustainable luxury shop windows of its shops in Chiado, Bairro Alto and Estoril-Cascais (Portugal), showing the origin of its raw materials, namely precious metals.
By contributing to the manufacture of sustainable jewellery, the brand shows customers how it acquires the precious metals, platinum, gold and silver in their pure state, revealing that most of them come from certified suppliers at different stages of the supply chain.
According to a press release: “In the workshops of Leitão & Irmão, the recycling of gold and silver, developed continuously through the reuse of sandpaper dust and recovery of shavings, leads to the creation of new pieces with the waste reused from manufacturing. In turn, the precious metals acquired come from suppliers with RJC (Responsible Jewellery Council) accreditation or CoC (Chain of Custody) certification, which ensures monitoring, from extraction in the mine to marketing as raw material. With this edition of shop windows on sustainable luxury, the brand highlights its commitment to responsible manufacturing, ensuring through certification and origin of raw materials the best working practices in this world of sustainability”.
You can visit the shop windows with Leitão & Irmão pieces in the Chiado shop, Lisbon’s cosmopolitan address par excellence, where Casa Leitão has been present since 1877; in the Bairro Alto shop, where a personalised service is available and in the Estoril shop, in Cascais.
