MOTIVATIONS
The shift towards a well implemented EcoDesign approach that could progressively take us to be eco-sustainable and provide an approximation to the global practices and the requirements, is a hard and ever growing path that involves and take so much resources of a small design brand either on the development, testing as well on the way it is communicating the “final result”. The possibility to have a wider audience with the coaching, the support and the strategic mentoring from international experts could drove our fashion statement to another level, that is what I am expecting from OpenMyMed Prize.

VALUES LINKED TO THE MMM (CRAFT TECH CARE & GIVE BACK)
The garments that we are developing for the last two seasons are focus on the implementation of the EcoDesign philosophy, conceived and designed to minimize the fabric waste and taking to the minimum the use of accessories and zero zippers; the buttons used had a 80% biodegradable material in its composition. Most of the fabrics used are recycled or eco smart fabrics.
The production is local made in Portugal with European sources/raw materials.
Through these years we have supported different types of social causes and some philanthropic/charitable events that I enjoy being a part of.
