A Fascinating emerging concept in fashion is the use of fabrics which are woven not from man-colored fibers, but instead from fibers that grow naturally already in different colors.
Scientists believe that naturally colored cotton had been cultivated as far back as 4,500 B.C. and that it was widely used by the Incas and other old civilizations, making Colored Cotton at least as old as its widely popular white counterpart. The Colored cotton employed in our collections is the result of years of research by EMBRAPA ( Brasilian Agency for Agricultural Research). Cotton already born colored is found in the green, brown, beige and ruby colors. These basic colors can be influenced in hues and tones by environmental factors such as type of soil, water regimen, and sunlight. The Colored Cotton you see in our garments comes from a very small region in Northeastern Brasil where it is processed into the various fabrics and yarns used in the garments you see here.
The concept of sustainability is based on the premise that people and their communities are made up of social, economic, and environmental systems that are in constant interaction and that must be kept in harmony or balance if the community is to continue to function to the benefit of its inhabitants— now and in the future. A healthy, balanced society (or nation, or community, depending on the strength of one’s magnifying glass) is one that can endure into the future, providing a decent way of life for all its members—it is a sustainable society. Sustainability is an ideal toward which to strive and against which to weigh proposed actions, plans, expenditures, and decisions. It is a way of looking at a community or a society or a planet in the broadest possible context, in both time and space.
Our company is one of the affiliates of Natural Cotton Color Group is premised sustainability. We plant, harvest and weave the raw materials we use and that, besides the organic certification, does not require any chemical treatment. Our accessories and needlework results from regional artisans workers that are inserted in the context of globalization, without imposition of global standardization phenomenon. Under the social bias of sustainability, the Group uses the work of local inmates, liaising with the prisons to decrease the workers sentences. For every three days worked the sentence is reduced by one day. We supply raw materials, guidance and fair payment for produced accessories. Helping them, we have items of great beauty and sophistication.
