description: We created classic and sophisticated patterns designed to fit different body types with a timeless style, not affected by the passage of time or changes in fashion. 

Made in small, sustainable batches, this collection was conceived by using a design technique at the cutting stage that reduces textile waste and upcycles fabric leftovers to create other accessories.

Quality pieces made to last, that will be repeated every season in collaboration with local artists and makers. 

Our first collection was created and handmade by women in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil and handpainted by local artist Liria Carneiro. No piece is like the other, hand dyeing creates unexpected results, allows space for experimentation and gives us permission to find beauty in “mistakes”. It is a true celebration of the individuality of the consumer and creative practices of the makers.
