All of our suits are sewn by talented seamstresses in Florianópolis Santa Catarina in the south of Brazil where our family is from. Our flagship store is located in Caraíva Bahia Brazil where we currently reside.
OUR SUITS IN FULL TRANSPARENCY
All our solid coloured Suits, are made, inside and outside, with AMNI SOUL ECO, the world`s first biodegradable yarn that decomposes once on the landfill. The fabrics will turn into biomass within 28 months instead of 11 years. See video below to learn more.
Our printed suits are made with polyester self fabric and biodegradable lining. MAMAZOO has not yet reached the high minimum order policy the manufacturer demands for print on biodegradable fabric, but we are close and working hard to close this gap. Our patterns are all printed with water based ink, free from heavy metals. 100 % of the water used in the printing process is reused and today 95% of all waste generated by fabric manufacturers we select goes for recycling. We package our suits with packaging material from Eco Enclose @ecoenclose and @noissueco, recyclable and compostable materials.
We never negotiate price of labor in any part of the making. We pay the full price in all of the steps.
All of the above gives a meaning and purpose to what we do at MAMAZOO.
