Upcycled Multicolored Clutch
Every inch of the Nene is inspired by the traditional carnival dance the Frevo. Imagine the streets filled with dynamic dancers holding brightly coloured umbrellas that radiate their colour throughout the streets, sharing an intense feeling of joy, positivity and life to every passer-by. We took the shape and the colourways of the Frevo umbrella to create the handle of the clutch bag, which is made from decommissioned construction wood and excess fabric from the fashion industry, all rescued from their destiny of landfill. The colours of the Frevo umbrella extend into the main body of the bag to represent the positive radiance of colour that showers the streets during carnival during the Frevo dance. Fashioning kindness is at the heart of our company. The design of the Nene clutch bag encompasses the idea to pass on positivity to every person who makes, wears or even sees it, just like how the Frevo umbrella showers positivity on the streets during carnival. The bag is fitted with an inner pocket formed from recycled plastic bottle fabric and with a magnetic popper closure. Finished with the embroidered From Belo mantra ‘Feed Goodness into The World’, because that’s exactly what they do. You can keep everything secure in your Nene Clutch with the magnetic popper closure.
