FASHIONABLE ECO LIVING
All the items are handcrafted from surplus fabrics from
factories. Offcuts, remnants, and imperfect pieces of fabrics are collected
from the factories and revived for a second life. ROPOdesign believes that with
creativity and craftsmanship, something beautiful can be made using the
resources we already have.
ROPOdesing is collaborating with a linen factory in Kaunas,
Lithuania. The fabrics that otherwise would be landfilled go to Roberta’s
workshop and are used for all kinds of items. It is a more time consuming
procedure than buying fabrics in bulk because every time the colours,
quantities, and fabrics differ. Therefore, they need to be evaluated, decided
on the products they are the most suitable for, quantities, making, and
finally, presentation to the customers. It also means the assortment is always
different, quantities are low, and you’ll get a one-off piece.
ROPO design is always looking for ways how to expand
production and include more sellers and suppliers passionate about
sustainability and upcycling. If you one of them, please contact me.
