Embroidered bed linen, tablecloth and towels 

Ibitinga is known nationwide as the Brazilian Capital of Embroidery and attracts tourists from all over the country interested in shopping for bed linen, tablecloth and towels. Embroidery work accounts for 80% of the local economy.

This tradition began in the early 20th century, with a Portuguese lady called Dioguina Pires, who started embroidering trousseaus for brides and baby clothes to help her family. Over time, other women in the town have learned her skill.

Production techniques and raw materials have developed over time, and when electric machines arrived, the production gained scale and made Ibitinga famous all over the country.
