ESCAMA STUDIO Danubia Tear Drop Shoulder Bag - Silver
Escama Studio is a social enterprise based in California and Brazil. Their mission is 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 thier flagship product - crocheted accessories with post consumer pull tabs - appear as if they're made from big metallic scales of a fish.
To achieve the unique aesthetic, the Escama Studio team adapted traditional Brazilian crochet work and imbued the handmade crafts with a modern design sense and new materials. With designs originating both in San Francisco and Brazil, the pop top bags are handmade in Brazil by artisan groups who are not just contract manufacturers, but an integral part of Escama Studio.
The Danubia Tear Drop Shoulder Bag - a silver barrel purse, a unique curved shape and a metallic texture of chain-mail. The purse's sides, made from the bottoms of recycled cans, add a clever design element. The interior is fully lined with silver fabric and one inside zipped pocket. It comes finished with a zipper closure on top. Each piece comes with a hang tag signed by the artist who made it. Sustainable fashion made in Brazil.
