My name is Susana and I'm a dreamer!
My inspiration comes from the blue color of the sea, the sky and the clouds, the gold sand, the green of the trees and the miracle of life. Tenderness is my motto.
I'm from Portugal. I live with my two boys, my husband had to emigrate to Ghana some years ago and I live between Portugal and Ghana, which is undoubtedly a great source of inspiration.
I love to create since I was a little girl, I studied Fashion Design. I started to create for my dolls then to my friends and finally my customers. When I became pregnant I fell in love with baby clothing so I first created for my babies then to my friend's babies and finally I created TENDERBLUE.
All of TENDERBLUE pieces are made with the care and tenderness of the days of old. Quality is not restricted to the materials (100% wool or cotton and mother of pearl buttons) but in all the details and finishing. From classic baby blue and rose, colors also include red, brown, grey and other, to achieve some daring combinations. TENDERBLUE pieces are made one by one, sometimes in a vintage knit machine and others handknitted, sewn by hand with all my love and the love of my "right arm" Conceiçao. And this is what turns TENDERBLUE so unique and special.
