Sorema story begins one Spring Monday in 1974 when Manuel Relvas and his son Duarte Relvas decided to open a company to produce textile coating products for cars. Duarte had just graduated in Economics and full of ideas got the help of his father that had already some experience in the textile segment.
One year later, due to the Portuguese revolution and the loss of the biggest costumer a big shift took place and started the production of bath textiles, since the machinery used was the same.
Money was tight so Duarte asks his wife Maria to help him in the company. With a very small team but with a huge passion to the company that still can be found today, the first Sorema Bath Rug was born, and they were delighted with the result.
Manuel were also painter and art teacher, so he had strong design competencies that used to create the first unique products of the company, that soon started to be noticed in the market.
Product development and design was since then the moto of our company, which is the oldest existing in Europe producing Bath Rugs.
