Escama Studio is a social enterprise that employs women in Brazil to create innovative on-trend fashion accessories while promoting sustainable development through trade. The word 'Escama' means 'fish scales' in Portuguese; the name was chosen because their crocheted accessories use post consumer pull tabs that give their products the appearance of big metallic scales of a fish.
To achieve their unique aesthetic, the Escama Studio team adapted traditional Brazilian crochet work and imbued the handmade crafts with a modern design sense and new materials.
- Fabric and aluminum
- Recycled pop tabs
- Detachable wrist strap
- 7" L x 3.5" H x 1" D (17.8 x 9 x 2.5 cm)
- Handmade in and fairly traded from Brazil
Created to help women worldwide gain economic security for themselves and their families by earning fair wages for their handiwork, Global Girlfriend sources women-made, fair-trade imported, eco-friendly products. By supporting long-term partnerships with the artisans, it fosters equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance, and development strategies to help reduce poverty, one community at a time. Become a "Global Girlfriend" and help build a brighter future for girlfriends around the globe!
