Escama Studio is a social enterpise based in California and Brazil. Their mission is 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 our flagship product -- crocheted accessories with post consumer pull tabs -- appear as if they're made from big metallic scales of a fish.
To achieve the unique aesthetic, the Escama Studio team adapted traditional Brazilian crochet work and imbued the handmade crafts with a modern design sense and new materials. With designs originating from both San Francisco and Brazil, the pop top bags are handmade in Brazil by artisan groups who are not just contract manufacturers, but an integral part of Escama Studio.
Three different bags have been donated to Rubbish events in Houston, Hermosa Beach and Salisbury to be sold at each live auction. Buy your tickets for the Hermosa Beach and/or Salisbury events today at the Fashion Show page on this website. Just click on whichever show you want to attend. See you there!
