VINTAGE IS THE BEST SUSTAINABLE OPTION
We work with beautiful vintage linen, we don't produce new fabric. What we find is unpredictable, this is why, once a linen roll is finished, it is unlikely that we create the same accessory again. But it is the beauty of our work.
SUSTAINABILITY DOESN'T KNOW SEASONS
Sustainability and artisanship don't work in seasons, they work in the context of slow fashion. Of we want to produce less and more skillfully, we need to break the intense circle of fashion, where so much goes wasted. A European artisanal production of accessories in vintage fabric involves handwork and it is not compatible with the fast production pace the fashion industry got us used to so far. This is called 'slow design' and it focuses on a product which is timeless, independent from seasons and trends, and therefore sustainable.
FAUX LEATHER IS NOT SUSTAINABLE, VEGETABLE RECUPERATED LEATHER IS
We don't buy new leather, we recuperate the surplus production from the eco leather industry. Eco leather, sometimes confused with faux leather (a plyurethane pulling material) is vegetable tanned leather. It's called 'vegetable' because of the natural materials used in the tanning process, like tree bark. This is one of the oldest methods of tanning known to man.
