Trash 2 Treasure | Recycled aluminum pull tab bags
Proof that the old adage “One’s Trash is another one’s Treasure” holds true. Escama Studio, comprising two women’s artisan cooperative of artisans in Brasilia (Brazil’s capital) – Cia do Lacre and Panteras do Lacre – create exquisite handbags and jewelry made of recycled aluminum pop tabs.
Escama was established in 1996 with the mission to provide jobs to the women in Brasilia, promote sustainability and artisan craftsmanship. Each Escama item is made of recycled aluminum pop tabs that is crocheted together by hand. Escama’s story is truly inspirational!!
