Designed by Simone Simonato, SICA is a bags and accessories brand made from textile waste, discarded fabrics and end roll.
Simone had been running her fashion label SICA during 10 years in Brazil before deciding to complet a master degree in Berlin.
Meanwhile she heard about a social project in Bangladesh and jumped at the chance to flew there and visit a production site.
She felt immediately inspired by the country, the culture, the food, the colors…
She spent 6 weeks there including 1 week working with the bengali women at the production, checking the quality of the materiel and the working conditions to make sure to respect everyone involved.
It has always been important for Simone to compromise on a fair price on both sides, workers and customers.
Simone is also a part of project « Water to Wine » in partnership with Berliner Stadtmission.
