Our Partners

Escama StudioEscama Studio is a social enterpise based in California and Brazil. Our 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 our 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.

Escama Studio is a green company, a fair trade company and an ongoing experiment in sustainability. We measure our success by the strength of our partnerships with producers in underprivileged communities and by the sense of wonder that our products bring to our fans worldwide. We are all sincerely grateful for every customer who loves these handbags and supports this venture.

Empower. Connect. Preserve. Those are all powerful, fundamentally important mantras that drive us. But at the very core of what we do, at our very essence – we’ve succeeded only if we make both artisans and customers happy.

Happiness. Global Happiness.

An elusive and simple emotion. And yet an impossibly large call to action. How could a small company like ours have any measurable impact on global happiness?

Happiness is fleeting. It is trite. And the world is an angry mess anyways, right? Maybe. But our time on earth is also fleeting. And if we can contribute to making others happier, we’ve done something worth doing.

More than fair trade, more than microcredit, more than anything else we can think of – if that artisan family is happy, we’ve succeeded.

But can we actually play a role in spreading global happiness? And can we build a company around it? Maybe. Maybe not. But if we can try – shouldn’t we give it a shot?

The founders of BIO Imaginarte take the mantra “Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle” to heart. The focus of BIO when it began in 1992 was educating Mexico in the need to protect and restore the environment.

The materials we use ensure that earth and all its species may count on a suitable environment and a sufficient space to live.  It is imperative to live a life of quality.  As long as we maintain the natural resources we were provided with, we can better maintain our world.

The products from our Bio work shops incorporate secondary materials.  This means re-used products/recycled materials, which have proven to hold great purpose.  When we recycle, we enhance the quality of life.  By using these materials, we avoid having the aforementioned materials ending up wasted.  Including the techniques and traditions of hand crafting to preserve and increase the artisanal culture, Bio-Imaginarte works for a cause:  the world and all its inhabitants.  Through the years, many hand made goods have been substituted by mass assembly line production with the use of machines.  We, Bio-Imaginarte, make an effort to combat the main cause of environmental deterioration in the world, in addition to poverty.  This promotes that people, instead of machines, have an income-based work, while giving our world its proper care.

Our staff consists of a wonderful group of people living in Ranchos off the country side.  They come from different states of Mexico and are a huge part of the environmental movement:  assisting us by producing our environmentally friendly designs.

Our effort is to insure that all our products may be both eco-friendly and one of a kind.  By doing this, our strive is to pay more attention to the earth and its materials and our role in it. This contributes to viable solutions for many of the challenges that we are presently facing, such as: preserving resources and species, pollution and employment.  It also facilitates better health and quality of life, rather than the deterioration of the environment.

Bio-Imaginarte uses only the recycled materials we collect: such as pop tops from soda cans, inner tube from used tires, discarded plastic from billboards, candy wrappers and soda cans.  Through our work, we express not only our intent of preservation, but the love of the earth and our culture.
