“To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival.”
Crafted with the dried fruit of the Totumo or Calabash tree native to the Caribbean coast of Colombia, the must-have accessory in our Spring-Summer 2020 collection pays tribute to traditional artisanship and the very essence of nature.
This fascinating tree grows in the wild, the round fruit carefully hand-picked from its branches, meaning that no trees have to be cut down for the use of the Crescentia cujete—its scientific name . As a plus, the unique object has a natural shiny quality that means no chemicals are needed to give it a polished finish.
This season, we lined the inside of the object with leftover fabrics from the collection in an effort to reduce waste and repurpose. As a brand, taking care of the environment has been at the top of our priorities and we are constantly taking steps towards a more sustainable and conscious process.
