WHY WE LOVE IT 

Easily transition from an afternoon at the outdoor cafe to an evening engagement with the unparalleled personality and style of the Wasabi(tm) Africa Skirt.

The skirt features acetate from Greencel, certified by FSC and Oeko-Tex.  Natural fiber acetate is renewable and biodegradable.

Dyes and other materials are certified by Oeko-Tex and Azo Free (biodegradable, water soluble, and carcinogen-free).

Woven featuring textiles by Werner (Abvtex certification: social responsibility via sustainability).  Werner treats all water used in the manufacturing process. Potable water is then returned to Piabanha River in Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro.

 

This skirt was made by seamstresses at Maria das Candeias' shop. Maria is a seamstress from a low income region outside Rio de Janeiro. She set up her own shop in order to encourage the fair wages and work conditions practices in the industry. 


Leftover fabric and selvedge is donated to the non-profit company, Costurando com Amor, specializing in assisting women in socially vulnerable situations, and victims of domestic violence.
