Story
Recovering old fabrics and traditions not only makes pieces be unique, but also extends the lifecycle of very valuable clothes that took a long time to make and that due to its quality and design can last a lifetime.
To preserve and reuse crochet is a way to value the effort taken during its craftsmanship, and to remember our past.
Impact
Cotton is a natural fiber, but this does not mean that it is a low impact one. This irrigated crop needs not only a huge amount of water during its cultivation and production, but also requires the use of pesticides that pollute water sources and cause loss of biodiversity. It is usually grown and manufactured by big companies in undeveloped countries with poor working conditions, countries in which accessing potable water is already a problem. In fact, 2,6% of the world’s freshwater is used to produce cotton.
