The story behind Hotel Gifts Selection, working with family-owned companies to produce quality bespoke goods for luxury hotels in a sustainable way.
To tell a long story short, Hotel Gifts Selection is a women story who have fell in love with Portugal and its wonderful handicrafts, and wanted to collaborate with family-owned companies in order to produce in a sustainable way.
In November 2012, Caroline and Anne-Marie launched www.poisselection.com a nice selection of Souvenirs Gifts Made in Portugal eager to share their discoveries. They went all over Portugal to discover the most beautiful pieces of handicrafts.
Pois Selection became a well-known partnership of international companies organizing events in Portugal and willing to offer a custom souvenirs to their participants: Porto wine, sardines ceramics, traditional azulejos…etc When Google staff from Ireland has organized an event in Lisbon, they chose Pois Selection for their gifts!
In 2014, Caroline met the love of her life when she discovered the Arcalo Chairs, Iconic chairs of Lisbon terraces. She is now the main distributor in Europe of those beautiful chairs.
At the end of 2014, to go further, Emilie and Anne-Marie decided to use this wonderful handmade know-how to produce bespoke and quality goods for luxury hotels. Hotel Gifts Selection was born with a new website www.hotelgiftselection.com dedicated to luxury hospitality products.
In May 2015 and January 2018, Virginie ans then Camille joined the team bringing her amazing energy and talent to the project.
Today, we are proud of our story! To us, ethical manufacturing is more than just a “feel good” story. It’s a core value of our business. We are very proud to work with family-owned companies to produce quality bespoke goods for luxury hotels.
