Reguengos de Monsaraz is the name of a village in Alentejo (Portugal), best know for the beautiful handwoven woolen blankets made to this day by the Fábrica Alentejana de Lanifícios.These blankets feature distinctive geometric motifs in bold colors and are one of the icons of Portuguese textile culture.
