Sustainable fashion Thursday: Bello & Eco

In the fair trade week in Utrecht, I found Bello & Eco

Their philosophy  is based on promoting goods that are beautiful and durable.

I got my eyes in this elegant, yet casual hat, the fashionable addition to my sustainable-conscious style.

The hat is made from Toquilla straw ( Carloduvica Palmata), a natural fiber known for its reusable properties. The artisans from northern Peru use the fiber to handcraft beautiful accessories while working in good conditions for a fair wage.

Carmen, Bello & Eco owner, sent the hat via the post with a lovely surprise, a mini-bag made with the same fiber. It is flexible, neatly  finished  and promises durability.
