Local and Ethical Manufacture
The very first collection was made by a small and ethical manufacturer in Lisbon's suburbs, thanks to a successful crowdfunding/pre-orders campaign completed in May 2021.
Although, the minimum quantity asked by any small manufacturer is at least 50 pieces per model, with a quite long production delay, so it was not doable anymore on a regular basis. Because, as an eco-friendly brand, the purpose is not to produce what is not guaranteed to be sold and then not use unnecessarily the Planet resources.
So since then, I am the one (Calypso, founder and designer of the brand) who craft a very small quantity of each pieces for pop-ups and designer markets, otherwise it is made to order especially for you in my Lisbon apartment's living-room, now transformed into a messy atelier.
