From the fabrics to the buttons and labels, most materials we use are biodegradable, undyed or certified. Sometimes all three. Clothes shouldn't harm the planet, or pile up at landfills. We provide a full breakdown of your garment's components in our shop pages.
We reduced plastic throughout our supply chain. Your orders arrive in 100% recyclable and compostable packaging, much of which was already recycled. Suppliers often rely on plastic packaging, and we are actively urging them to make improvements.
100% of our garments are stitched in São Paulo, Brazil, and most of our materials are sourced from Brazilian factories. This helps support the local economy and reduce our carbon footprint.Our shop pages contain provenance details for each item.
Causes We Care About
We leverage our platform to back communities and causes we care about. The women of the Sateré Mawé tribe trade crafts to fund their livelihoods. We hope to support and highlight their work by gifting our first 50 customers a bracelet they made from Amazonian açaí seeds.
Protect Our Forests
The Amazon generates c.20% of the world’s oxygen, is home to over 40,000 plant species and 1 in 10 animal species. We rely on the forest for our oxygen, our biodiversity and the future of our planet. Deforestation is a fact. We help keep our forests alive by planting 1 tree for each order.
These aren’t your kids’ section finds or shrunken versions from fast fashion retailers. These are Petite-only designs. Just for you. Clothes designed to be loved, worn, and worn again. Timeless, quality. Garments are on average only worn 7 times. Increased wear per garment is sustainable consumption.
Clothes grow from bud to body. Materials impact the water required for farming, the energy and waste from production, the longevity of wear, and the ability to compost or recycle at end-of-life. Let's chat materials we love, and why.
From The Heart
Our sizes are small but our heart is huge. We are proudly designed, born and crafted in Brazil. We believe in supporting the local economy and highlighting the wonderful craftsmanship and raw materials of our country. We source locally, we stitch locally. And we scour the country to find incredible projects, communities and crafts to share with you.
The people of Sateré Mawé are indigenous to the lower region of the Amazon river, deep in the Brazilian rainforests. They are credited with the original cultivation of the guaraná fruit, a plant commonly used in Brazil for the production of drinks, and now known world-over for its energy-boosting wellbeing properties. In addition to the cultivation of guaraná, they have long collected seeds from a range of trees found on the soils of the Amazonian rainforests, including puca, morotó, açaí, corozo (known in Brazil as jarina), tento, caramuri, tucumã and muru-muru, for the production of artisanal crafts. The women of Sateré Mawé founded the Association of Indigenous Women of Sateré Mawé (AMISM) in 1992 to champion their craft and turn it into a viable, sustainable form of income. Since then, they have sold handmade jewellery at trade fairs, events and in the town of Manaus to support and fund their livelihoods. Their work is a beautiful, natural piece of Brazilian craftsmanship. We committed to gifting their bracelets to our first 50 customers. These are produced primarily with the açaí seeds.
