ESCAMA STUDIO Greta Textured 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 Greta Textured Shoulder Bag - a recycled metallic silver handbag with appearance of scale armor and a soft pliable texture. It's handcrafted in Brazil by talented women artisans who have transformed polished scrap aluminum into a beautifully supple, smooth and slouchy shoulder bag. It may look like heavy armor but it's incredibly lightweight. Beautifully finished inside and out with brocade silver fabric liner, one inside zipped pocket and a custom metal zipper top closure.
