Why every day is Earth Day at Artesano


Artesano - Lanao - Sustainable Fashion Bag - Pinatex

Today, we’re celebrating Earth Day – an annual event started nearly 50 years ago to raise awareness of the threats affecting our natural environment, and the positive action that we can all take to protect our fragile planet.

Here at Artesano, we’re passionate about contributing to the values of Earth Day by taking a sustainable approach to business - every day.

When our customers buy from Artesano, they’re choosing products that are ethically and consciously crafted to the highest eco-friendly standards.

Our hats and bags are woven with love using traditional, customary techniques that do not impact the natural environment.

Made by genuine artisans, our manufacturing also contributes to sustainable community development in Ecuador, by creating jobs for local workers in a green, ethical industry.

Our commitment to environmental conservation also extends to our exploration of innovative new textiles and techniques.

Our new collection features totes, bags and hat-band detailing made from Piñatex™ – the sustainable, vegan leather alternative crafted from the fibres of pineapple leaves.

This exciting range of styles creates a special cultural partnership between the artisans of Ecuador and the Philippines – united in their collaboration on materials and production for some environmentally-conscious, progressive and beautiful designs.

Experience our sustainable style collection and keep up with our eco-friendly, #slowfashion approach to design and production on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Happy Earth Day from the Artesano team!
