The

day

starts

with

a

visit

to

an

olive

orchard

in

order

to

understand

how

valuable

the

fruit

and

the

oil

has

been

to

humankind,

as

food

as

well

as

energy.

In

the

interior

of

the

olive

mill

the

expertized

guide

talks

about

the

oil

production.

Monterosa

olive

oil

is

famous

across

the

atlantic

and

has

been

prized

several

times

for

its

quality.

The

visit

is

toped

by

a

very

interesting

olive

oil

taste

of

3

varieties.

In

the

afternoon

it's

time

to

learn

more

about

the

secrets

of

cork.

At

an

active

factory

we

are

welcomed

by

another

guide

who,

during

the

briefing,

explains

the

importance

of

cork

to

the

portuguese

economy.

An

interesting

walk

throughout

the

building

is

the

ideal

way

to

visualise

all

the

work

involved

to

make

stoppers

for one of the most famous wine in the world:Champagne!

Do you know that....

It

was

with

cork

fabric

from

Pelcor

that

designer

Teresa

Martins

recently

worked

a

complete

look

that

she

created

for

Lady

Gaga.

Inspired

by

the

music

of

renowned

singer

and

Klimt's

masterpiece,

which

Vienna

paid

homage

to

by

celebrating

his

150th

anniversary,

Teresa

Martins

created

a

cork

dress

veneered

in

gold

and

silver

and

hand-embroidered

with

beads

and

metallic

threads,

recreating

the

textures and compositions that we see in the artist’s paintings.

The

dress

that

symbolizes

the

fusion

between

fashion,

music

and

art

took

2

years

to

be

produced

and

was

offered

to

Lady

Gaga,

who

used

it

at

an

ArtRave

after

the

concert

she

gave

in

Lisbon

in

November

2014.

The

moment

was

so

intense

that

Lady Gaga shared it on social networks.
