- ABOUT US -

In 1934, during the Great Depression, Manuel Prata,
20 years old, decided to deepen his knowledge in tailoring,
by joining a course for tailors in Porto, northern Portugal.

Manuel did not know that he was taking the first steps of a long journey in the textile
and clothing sector, that would involve future generations of his family. From a one man
operation to an international supplier in the garment trade.


In the following decades, after the 2nd World War, Manuel’s sons would grow
side by side with their father learning the family trade.

The company became famous for the quality of the work and the passion
and determination of the second generation to grow and flourish.

In 1980, Emanuel Prata, the fifth son of Manuel created his first garment trading company,
calling it 'Prata & Borges', today recognised for the high quality and diversity
of its production.

His entire professional life has been dedicated to the company,
leaving only when retired.

In 2012, siblings Filipe and Ana Prata, Emanuel's children took the reigns in directing the company,
striving to gain recognition in the international market.
They are committed to building the LaGofra brand, with more and improved services.
