Malahas Sonix was built in 1964 under the authorization of the then fascist dictatorship of Salazar in Barcelos, northern Portugal. Since then the factories thrived during the textile explosion of the 70s and 80s out of Portugal and survived its decline from then 90s till present.
Today Sonix is one of the very few vertically integrated factories in Portugal, meaning it handles all operations in house, from knitting, finishing, dying, cutting, stitching and packaging.
The factory was bought out in 2006 by Maria Concecâo making it part of the Dias textile group. Maria Concecâo started in the industry with a few sewing machines over her husband’s butcher shop to now be in the top 5 groups in the industry, exporting worldwide to such brands as Next, Replay, Inditex, Levis, All Saints and most recently Serge Denimes…Live the dream.
