Madeira needlepoint canvas is, today, an art in extinction. We, Bordal – Madeira Embroidery, decided to present to the public the art pieces we keep and preserve, as well as the history of this art. Above all, we seek to make this cultural heritage known, especially to Madeiran people, because it is part of our history, so that this knowledge does not disappear.
