Since 2005, Jorge Moita created and developed a studio and a production system based in the Women´s Jail
of Tires, Portugal. The project gained immediate international, and inside the Minister of Justice, recognition
and profile, giving birth to a range of high-end ethos products, developed in a low-tech environment, and
making evidence of the challenges designers, companies and society can experience in the turn of the Century.
The project provided a social eco, far behind bars, from the workers to other Jails and into the community of
design,and made possible projects that ranged from commissions to pieces and complete collections on special
request. Working for the “Federation Française du Prêt-a-Porter”, the Who´s Next Paris and Premiere Classe
