J. Caetano & Filhas is a family-owned Portuguese company that has been manufacturing high-quality garments since 1973.

With our headquarters located in the Penafiel area, just a short distance from Porto, we have established ourselves as an important player in the Portuguese textile industry.
Our strategic location provides convenient access to domestic and international markets, allowing us to serve clients worldwide. In 2001 we expanded our operations to Morocco.


We take pride in our family heritage. Under the leadership of Joaquim Caetano and now managed by his daughters, Elsa and Filipa, we uphold the values and traditions that have been passed down through generations.

A complete solution is offered to our customers: From pattern development, prototype making and material sourcing on early stages of product creation to production and quality control in both Portugal and Morocco locations. We work closely with top-notch suppliers, laundries, dyeing facilities, and embroiderers to ensure exceptional craftsmanship.

After initially establishing ourselves as a formal men’s shirt producer we spent the following 50 years expanding our expertise and forging strong partnerships. As a result, we now proudly offer comprehensive development and production services for both men’s and women’s styles.


“Our history is made up of dedicated and ambitious employees. With them, we share goals, challenges, our sorrows and greatest achievements. We value a healthy work environment where everyone feels respected and inspired to grow together with the company.”


As a responsible company, we integrate social, environmental, ethical, and human rights considerations into our business strategy and operations. We hold certifications such as GOTS, GRS, and BSCI, demonstrating our commitment to sustainability and responsible practices.


“JCaetano distinguishes itself through rigor in its relationships with its business partners. We seek to establish solid and long-lasting collaborations. We share with suppliers and customers our sustainable and innovative vision for the development of products of the highest quality.”


As we look to the future, our goal is to continue growing sustainably and building strong relationships with our employees and the community.


“We are proud of the journey we have taken and the obstacles we have overcome together. We are living the present with intensity and I have full confidence in the future.”
