Escama Studio is a collaborative design studio based in California and Brazil. Our flagship product is a sleek, handcrafted line of women's bags made from recycled aluminum tabs.
Humble materials elevated through design and integrity. To achieve our singular aesthetic, the Escama Studio team adapted traditional crochet techniques used in Brazil and imbued this tradition with a modern design sense and new materials. With designs originating from both San Francisco and Brazil, the bags are hand crocheted in Brazil by women's collectives who are not just contract manufacturers, but an integral part of Escama Studio.
The result is an elegant and striking collection of accessories that illustrates our mission: creating innovative and stylish products from post-consumer and other sustainable materials, through partnerships with producers in underprivileged communities.
Escama Studio is a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation (FTF) the trade association that strengthens and promotes North American organizations fully committed to fair trade. The Federation is part of the global fair trade movement, building equitable and sustainable trading partnerships and creating opportunities to alleviate poverty.
