Lovely handmade fabric sardine keyring representing a “friendly” sardine, the Lisbon iconic symbol
Pois likes: this is a lovely handmade fabric sardine keyring, the Lisbon iconic symbol. It is handmade by Anabela, a Portuguese artist who has her atelier in the tipical Bairro Alto area in Lisbon. It is printed with a humoristic sardine face on the recto and made of plain fabric on the verso. This keyring is emblematic from Lisbon. To cut a long story short, the sardine is “a Portuguese icon” and is even considered to be the queen of the Lisbon festival, which takes place every year in June. At this time of the year, you can smell grilled sardines througout the Lisbon streets.
Pois testimonial: “Whenever I ask Anabella to have one for myself, I always end up giving it to a friend who has fallen in love with it before I even get to use it! Hopefully one day I will have my own. I like it because it is original and so big that I can easily find my keys in my bag.“
Each piece is handmade with printed fabric
