* Our parts are unique, produced unit by unit, which means there are always small variations in texture or colour.
Swallows, the small birds with dark, glossy-blue backs, red throats, pale underparts and long tail streamers are extremely agile in flight and spend most of their time on the wing. They are widespread breeding birds in the Northern Hemisphere, migrating south in winter.
Swallows are a welcome sign of spring and are strongly liked to the sea, sailors and sailing. They arrive in Europe, coming from Africa in the early April.
Aristotle once said – One swallow does not a summer make, nor one fine day and a Portuguese fado lyrics say: By dying a swallow, the spring does not end. Opposite views of life.
In Portugal swallows are a cultural Icon since the ceramic Bordalo Pinheiro’s version of the black bird got popular decorating the walls across the country.
