This week the ethical, sustainable and locally produced Dutch bag brand Tototè.Studio launches its partnership with Margreeth Olsthoorn in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, a well-known name in the Dutch and international fashion industry, housing contemporary designer collections for women and men such as Rick Owens, Maison Margiela and Helmut Lang.
The young bag brand only launched in late 2020 and is currently setting foot with wholesaler partners in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Spain, and countries like Italy, Austria and Switzerland, which will follow this year.
Tototè.Studio designs according to the three pillars ‘upcycled, ethical and local design’ with the aim to integrate sustainability and social responsibility throughout the entire chain, putting people and the planet first.
Upcycled and recycled
Tototè.Studio bags are produced with Italian and Portuguese in-stock and dead-stock leather, which are the result of the worldwide issue of overproduction, non-used materials and fabrics post-production. Additionally, all bags are lined with high quality vintage scarves, in order to minimize the need for producing new materials or fabrics and maximize the use of everything that is already at our planet’s disposal.
Ethical and local
Finally, Tototè.Studio bags are manufactured in the Netherlands by newcomers in partnership with Makers Unite. Makers Unite is a textile based creative agency supporting newcomers with access to the job market through the collaborative design and production of sustainable products, with an additional aim to shift narratives around migration globally. Makers Unite and Tototè.Studio share the ambition to achieve an equal, sustainable, and inclusive creative industry where newcomers can contribute with their talents.
Tototè.Studio is now available at Margreeth Olsthoorn in the colors Soft Yellow, Black, White and Burgundy.
