    WHATaECO! The site where you can find what you need in a more sustainable version

    We are on WHATaECO! When Anne-Laure (read here about her) proposed the collaboration with Benedetta Spattini and Caterina Lotti, it was immediately an enthusiastic “Yes!” about the opportunity to be present on e-commerce that invites you to consume less and better, choosing products with more ethics and sustainability. You can find us in the Tempo Libero (Free Time) section, among the interesting courses offered by the platform. Since we like to explain well and make known the partners we work with, we asked Benedetta and Caterina a few questions, to find out what it is, what it offers and how to join the WHATaECO project. Hi Benedetta, hi Caterina, how did…

    The new online marketplace that helps the “small” craft and made in Italy brands

    The pandemic, as we know, has made online shopping grow exponentially, bringing even people who have never done it before to digital and actually creating a new buying habit. This phenomenon has seen above all the big brands as protagonists, both because they are more known and because they are considered more reliable in online sales, penalizing small artisans, emerging designers and small businesses that in general have limited resources to invest in online commerce and therefore less chance of being known. Yet, small businesses are the heart of the economy, especially in a country like Italy that boasts a vast and very rich artisan fabric in every region. A…

    The Earth seen from space meets modular design: with SEMINA we wear agricultural geometries and a more responsible fashion

    From the collaboration between two brands, Biclot and earthncycle, the unique SEMINA collection is born, combining modular garments with clean and elegant shapes to the vision of our Earth through the eyes of space satellites. SEMINA’s design and graphics tell of the natural-artificial interaction, between fashion and agriculture. Two worlds united in a special collection to convey awareness and responsibility in production and consumption choices. It is the result of the meeting between Chiara and Mariangela. Chiara defines herself as a chaotic and creative mind, passionate about design in all its forms: “I find it in architecture for work, in fashion for passion, in nature for its undeniable beauty”. Mariangela…

    Stile Biologico and Shari Fontani: in the beauty of a dress, slow fashion and cinema meet, launching a message

    A dress. It is not just cloth or fiber. A dress says something about the person wearing it. Not all. But much. A created dress reveals something about the person who made it. Not all. But much. A dress can communicate a message of a group of united people who in unison agree on values in which they believe. We join this chorus, sharing the photos and the story of a dress in this article, out of editorial programming. Because when the letter that I will shortly share with you arrived, I immediately wanted to add our voice to that of those who, creating, wearing, photographing, weaving and doing their…

    Peterson+Stoop’s sneakers: when repair becomes high fashion

    Meeting Peterson+Stoop allows us to reflect upon a very important aspect regarding waste in the fashion industry. In Italy the shoe business is predicted to grow over 3.4% between 2020 and 2025. According to a report of the Italian Institute of Research Eurispes, 37% of Italians purchases a new pair of shoes every 3 months, noteworthy numbers that make us understand how important is talking about the production and consumption of shoes in a more sustainable way. Besides the actual shoes ending up in landfills at the end of the life cycle, during the tanning process also the shoe factories produce significant waste: dust, scraps and leather clippings polymeric materials…

    Brands and artisans participate in the initiative to oppose Black Friday: together with them let’s transform it into Green!

    November, for some, is the month of Black Friday. The Friday of big discounts is an initiative born in the United States with which companies announce the beginning of Christmas shopping. This year will be Friday 27 dedicated to discounted shopping. On November 30th, it will be Cyber Monday, specific for consumer electronics purchases. What’s green about all of this? On Black Friday itself, not much. For some it is an opportunity not to miss opportunities: a mountain of offers that sellers on Amazon and companies will propose us. However, we have the possibility to choose a more positive environmental impact, adopting a conscious approach to our purchases: We can…
