The New Factory
The new factory was designed in 1955 in the place where it lives today. With new European technology. Aesthetic innovation arises alongside technological innovation.
New possibilities in the development of new designs come to fruition
The Store in Lisbon
José Coelho Achega decided to stop reselling his pieces and opened his own store in August 1976 on Rua dos Fanqueiros in Lisbon. Achega Malhas was born as a brand with its own design focused on classic Lambswool and Merino.
More stores to follow in the heart of Lisbon. José Coelho Achega is succeeded by his children and now grandchildren.
The third generation aims to continue their grandfather's legacy by contributing to the knitwear tradition of the land where they were born. Buy what is ours, buy what is Portuguese.
