Wood Locks

These locks, a traditional production on the smallest island of the archipelago, associated with rural life, some still remaining, especially in agricultural shelters, are an emblematic product of the local handicraft that has maintained its relevance throughout the centuries, becoming inseparable from the history of the Region and the people from Corvo.
In the production of this type of handicraft, the re-use of raw materials is also important, and sometimes wood is used from old constructions that apparently have no utility.
The wooden locks from the island of Corvo, formerly used to lock the doors of wealthier homes, have now become a typical handicraft increasingly sought after by visitors.
