Càpe is an ethical and eco-sustainable tailoring project that combines a passion for design with awareness of the environment.
This Week’s Brand Spotlight: Cape Concept
In the production of their garments, they only use recycled and organic fibers, avoiding the introduction of new materials in the industrial chain and relying on entirely organic crops. Awareness of the environment is accompanied by an ethical approach thanks to their collaboration with laboratories of social cooperatives.
They love to use ECONYL® regenerated nylon for their creations, thus allowing them to create new products without using new resources. A great technological solution that allows them to transform a problem into an opportunity.
Sustainability is fundamental for them and it’s the philosophy that has guided all of their ideas. Their raincoats, accessories and clothing in recycled material and organic cotton offer us an environmentally friendly alternative. They think that even in the field of fashion it is necessary to react to the indiscriminate use of resources through creativity, seeking a balance between sustainability and production capacity.
For these reasons their garments are handmade without excesses of production, only the garments bought are created so as not to create waste.
All Capé creations are carried out in their laboratory and in the laboratory of the “SOS Donna” cooperative located in the same building, this reduces the pollution due to the transport of goods between different processing sites. Furthermore, the collaboration with SOS Donna is a precise sign of attention to social issues.
Attention to the environment and the use of sustainable materials also extends to all finishes, from zippers to labels, made with pieces of waste fabric and recycled paper.
Even regarding the packaging, they have tried to adopt the same philosophy, creating hand-made patchwork bags with scraps of advanced fabrics and packages for shipping in recycled paper closed by them in the laboratory using a sewing machine.
This is their contribution to nature, a contribution that they would like to share with us, as the choice of our garments is a small step towards a better world.
