We are a brand founded in Lisbon, Portugal in 2017 with the goal of promoting bamboo as a sustainable, fair and affordable alternative to plastic.
We truly believe in the power of individual change for a structural shift towards sustainable fashion and that bamboo is the way forward to do it all.
All our products are fairly made and we reject that sustainable fashion should be a luxury! By focusing in what matters - your experience - we are cutting on ads and fancy paid partnerships to bring you a premium product at an affordable price.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world (up to 91cm in 24h) making it the only type of sustainable, renewable wood for commercial use.
It is highly flexible, resistant, 100% clean and releases 35% more oxigen than other plants.
For millenia is has been used to construct houses, roads, furniture, clothing and a source of food and medicine.
By sourcing it sustainably, we are creating a product that respects the environment and contributes for a better future.

Well, if you take a closer look, you will notice that the tag is dotted with darker spots: these are actually seeds that can you germinate into beautiful wildflowers.
To plant your tag simply follow the steps below:
Soak you tag in water for 24h.Cut in pieces and cover it with a 1-finger layer of soil.Water it everyday so that the soil is always humid.Expose it to direct sunlight.Watch them grow!
The germination can take anywhere from 4-14 days. Once they have done so it can vary from 30-60 days for the flowers to bloom.
