    Garota do Calhau

    Nini Andrade Silva, a renowned Madeiran designer created several collections of the unique furniture called "Garota do Calhau", inspired by the pebbles of Funchal beaches.

    The name of the collection is a memory of 40 years ago, when children and young people who left school were known as “Garotos do Calhau”.

    They walked on the beaches, on top of the pebbles and rocks, begging and diving to catch the coins that foreigners in the boats threw to the sea.


    banner Funchal, the capital of the Madeira archipelago, was declared a city in the 1500s, and became an important point between the old and new worlds. The laid-back city owes much of its historical prominence to the white gold, the Madeiran sugar. Today Funchal is known for its appealing temperatures, wine and crafts. Top spots to visit include the open Worker's Market, Blandy's Wine Lodge and the Sacred Art Museum. Friendly locals, walkable streets and cheap taxis make the city easy to get around.
