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.
