Sal & Pimenta was launched in 2005 by Teresa, a true lover of the magic surrounding all childhood universe. Since the beginning, Teresa has been committed in creating unique and unforgettable memories in all children wearing her pieces, associating them with a happy and carefree way of living.
The project evolved from an initial family brand to an international company, without losing its native focus and spirit. Although the online store remains its main distribution channel, it now also operates through retailers, mainly in the United States.
The creative process and manufacturing keep the quality and accuracy from day one: all products are handmade in 100% local ateliers and factories.
Teresa gathers inspiration in everything surrounding her, from her world traveling to the uniqueness of every day’s life, and reflects this originality in the famous Sal & Pimenta patterns, which are then executed together with a graphic team.
The approval of these patterns is then the ‘responsibility’ of her daughter Maria: if Maria likes them, then every boy and girl will.
From the first idea to the final piece there’s a year and a half of searching and testing, with the passion that characterizes the brand. Swimsuits are the most wanted pieces; their originality has conquered the hearts of little ones and their parents all over the world.
