Escama Socorro Handbag

Item # 53291
In Stock

Escama Studio is a social enterprise that employs women in Brazil 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 their crocheted accessories use post consumer pull tabs that give their products the appearance of big metallic scales of a fish.

To achieve their unique aesthetic, the Escama Studio team adapted traditional Brazilian crochet work and imbued the handmade crafts with a modern design sense and new materials.

Hand crocheted with over 700 recycled pop tops, this bag is fully lined with beautiful fabric interior and a zipper closure. The strap is lined for added comfort.

  • 6" H x 10" L x 1.5" D (15.2 x 25.4 x 3.8 cm)
  • 21" L strap (53.3 cm)

Created to help women worldwide gain economic security for themselves and their families by earning fair wages for their handiwork, Global Girlfriend sources women-made, fair-trade imported, eco-friendly products. By supporting long-term partnerships with the artisans, it fosters equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance, and development strategies to help reduce poverty, one community at a time.
