The project Trouxa Mocha aims to make different items from typical material bought at trade fairs, markets and shops. The objective of this project is to stimulate and value traditional retailing by offering a genuine quality handcrafted product which, at the same time, portrays the essence of the Portuguese way of life.

Trouxa Mocha is one of the colloquial forms of trouxe-mouxe, an expression which originated from the Castilian “troche y moche” which means “to do something in a slapdash, confusing and rushed manner”.
