INTERESTING FACTS

Here we reply to the most frequent questions about DOM MARANHO and DOM BUCHO.

Did you know that…

// The cloth wrapping of DOM MARANHO was inspired by history. In the olden days, during village weddings, the families slaughtered goats but there would not be enough tripe to make all of the maranhos. So cloth was used instead. “…we used to make little cloth bags…they had to be really tight. Then you could take off the bag and the Maranho would keep its shape and not taste of water. We used cotton from old sheets or other cloths” From an interview with Dona Belmira do Carmo, a 65 year old resident of a village in the Sertã area.

// The cloth from DOM MARANHO is perfect for re-use, for example in your bread basket.

// DOM hasn’t forgotten about the little ones…if you prefer you can receive your products wrapped only in a paper bag, which includes a colouring-in picture for children.
