About Us

evelise_about us

My name is Evelise Gomes and I am happy to welcome you at Art D’Cretcheu.

It is the oldest Fair Trade Genuine Handcrafted shop in Cape Verde with the best price in town. It was established in 2003 by my sister Dilma Gomes. It is located inside the historical building of Centro Cultural do Mindelo an old warehouse built in 1858.

Art D’Cretcheu is much more than a souvenir shop. I am proud to be Cape Verdean and this is a place were I can promote my culture and our local artists.

I hope you will find something of your interest to bring/order a piece of Cape Verde to your homeland!
