Eco Fashion:Leda Bag
Based in San Francisco and Brazil, Escama Studio makes beautiful recycled eco fashion accessories using crochet and recycled aluminum pull-tabs. The Leda handbag shown here is a stylish example. A fundamental part of Escama Studio is to credit the artists who create each accessory. Each piece comes with a hang tag bearing the signature of the person who made it.
The artists work in co-operatives located outside of Brasília, Brazil. The groups offer women and men in the community a means to earn a living wage through handicrafts.
