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 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.
