Handmade fashion accessories

Hello! I’d like to introduce this Italian brand, Cingomma, producing accessories such as belts, bags and wallets which are very unique and innovative!

The idea behind Cingomma is that they rely on local artisans repurposing bicycle tyres and tubes to create these handmade fashion accessories.

One really peculiar aspect is their way to approach the e-commerce business: basically when they took the decision to launch the e-shop they also decided NOT accept online purchases if there is a physical store within your area and they are going to cancel your online order if you cheat 🙂

Reason behind it is that they care for their local staff and they want to protect the people working in the retail chain that would otherwise be affected and I would add perhaps cannibalized by the online growth, so kudos for that!

The idea of the founder has been to create products from repurposing bicycle tyres and tubes. They retrieve this material from the many bike repair shops located all over Italy and is a win-win situation since these material would have been dumped to landfills and contributed to generating pollution.

Have a look at their range of unique products they are also super cool, my favorite item is the backpack made entirely from recycled inner tubes perfect to carry my laptop to the office!

Conscious & ethical fashion brand!

Hello! I am back to write the first post of the year 2021 🙂

In my research I have come across this sustainable brand, Progetto Quid, that produces limited-edition collections of clothes and accessories.

Like other sustainable brands I am recommending in this blog, Quid recovers otherwise wasted high-quality textiles from luxury or well established fashion brands and then these fabrics are manipulated to give new life to garments by people, mostly women, with a vulnerable past.

What strikes me from the online collection is the prices affordability, I was amazed to see unique pieces like dresses for less than 50 euro! In fairness shipping cost are still quite expensive if you live outside Italy but that is expected as these companies still do not deal with huge amounts of orders.

Have a look at their fabulous garments I am sure you’ll find something worth buying! Follow me on Instagram or Facebook to stay up to date with the content I am posting, thanks so much!!!
