The Portuguese brand of sustainable fashion accessories Marita Moreno was the winner of the award “Fashion, Sustainability and Business” given by the Madrid-based Momad. The decision, revealed last week, prizes factors such as product, branding and sustainability components.
“It’s a sign we’re on the right path. We only work with sustainable materials, we only use Portuguese labour in the making of our products, and we use the materials’ colours and textures as central elements in the creation of a geometric and sculptural design”, explains Marita Setas Ferro, founder and creative director of the brand that labels itself as “slow fashion”.
In the production of the brand’s collections, priority is given to the use of environmentally friendly materials such as cork, linen, wood, lace or banana peel fibres.
