Founded in 1975 by Rufino Santos, the Rufel label is based in Santa Maria da Feira and specialises in producing bags. Currently, Rufel is run by Ivânia and Carina Santos, both designers of all the label's collections, who closely monitor the entire process until the final design of the product. 
This Portuguese brand is recognised for its design, the quality of the materials used and its elegant finishes. The semi-traditional manufacturing system makes Rufel bags true works of art.
Ruben Rua for Rufel is the brand's line for men, designed by model and presenter Ruben Rua.  There are 18 models in this line, all handcrafted, 100% leather, in five colours. The models go from cardholders to travel bags.
