CARDINAL is a luxury line working under the wing of OPSSS PORTUGAL, and was specially created for the modern man who nurtures a penchant for both style and elegance.
All de pieces are unique, the culmination of the partnership between a trained architect and one of porto’s best craftsman and jeweller.
Each piece of jewellery is individually crafted, in a process entwining a classical base with the skill of the craftsman and the cutting edge architectural ideas and concepts from its designer.
The pieces are made of high-grade materials, ranging from leather and semi-precious stones to exclusive silver elements.
The fusion between geometrical lines and organic elements, inspired by the relationship between man and nature, is present in the pieces’ colours, textures, shapes and movements, and come together to create simple, original pieces with an emphasis on minimalist aesthetics, functionality, and, above all, timelessness.
It all started when Paul Silveira Pereira, designer and founder, was challenged by a close friend to create a bag inspired by the iconic model of one of the most exclusive brands in the world.
He accepted the challenge and so it was planted the seed of what is today the brand SACCUS. (From the Latin, bag)
From drawing to drawing, prototype to prototype, the ideas were born and the concept took shape and strength.
A Portuguese brand of contemporary and functional design, with exclusive pieces, SACCUS was impregnated, since its inception, with the motto "ingenium Liberat animum" (imagination frees the spirit), holding up a young, free and progressive attitude.
Saccus wants to bring to the segment of men’s fashion accessories everyday items, and pieces of urban design that endure for generations, either because of their high quality, and because of their uniqueness.
SACCUS uses materials produced and reared in Portugal.
SACCUS counts, among its biggest stars, with the leather, the burel (a woolen cloth), the tanned fish skin, cork technical fabric (Eco Leather), linen and cotton.
To fulfill the promise of high quality and uniqueness of each of its products, SACCUS resorts to manufacture based on traditional card molds of design, with which the leather and the fabrics are then tailored.
Each piece is then made with the utmost attention to detail, whether by hand or machine, according to the technical specifications and the design.
Our seal of authenticity
There are four elements that must be present in a genuinely SACCUS piece:
It’s embossed hallmark in the leather, the custom metal fittings, the custom rivete on the outside and the woven label on the inside of each of our products.
