Have you heard of Escama? They’re an online fashion boutique, but are much more than that.
They’re all about wage equality and sustainability, as they work with artisan women in Brazil who make their fabulous recycled pull tab bags. See their awesome mission below.
To achieve our singular aesthetic, the Escama Studio team adapted traditional crochet techniques used in Brazil and imbued this tradition with a modern design sense and new materials. With designs originating from both San Francisco and Brazil, the bags are hand crocheted in Brazil by women’s collectives who are not just contract manufacturers, but an integral part of Escama Studio.
The result is an elegant and striking collection of accessories that illustrates our mission: creating innovative and stylish products from post-consumer and other sustainable materials, through partnerships with producers in underprivileged communities
The bags are a fusion of hundreds of pop can pull tabs and as you can see, the end result is dazzling.
