Today we introduce you a new local initiative that we support through We Sustainability:
The Figbees is a clothing and bags brand made by hand from a small workshop in A Coruña. Both the clothes and the bags they design and manufacture are made with natural fibers and organic dyes.
Under the inspiration of the Mediterranean light, they manually make their product creating unique pieces and in limited editions. Their passion for nature pushed them to enter the exciting world of vegetable dyes, using avocado, Campeche stick, walnut shell, chestnut, coconut fiber, Japanese Kakishibu, ...
But they are not only committed to the environment, they also fight for social cohesion and human rights, since the work done in The Figbees is carried out mostly by women at risk of exclusion.
They are also responsible for the natural dye workshops that we have done in many of our events.
