After the birth of the Brhands Foundation that supports and spreads the knowledge of the hands that create art, Covet Group took a step forward and decided to showcase live all the arts that make high-end design grow stronger everywhere. From Filigree to Tiles, Arraiolos, Upholstery, and many other forms of handcraft, everyone was blown away by the mastery shown in the Multiusos de Gondomar arena.
