100% Cerrado: Brasilia Reborn

Many thanks to fashion designer Amira Marion for forwarding this great tip regarding 100% Cerrado, a fashion-forward project by designers Sandra Maria and Sonia Reis, whose innovative textile collection helps support local communities of artisans on the outskirts of Brasilia while also promoting the preservation of natural resources in Brazil's 'Cerrado' region. Production waste is re-utilized as much as possible, and textile traditions are able to thrive in this 100% inspired Latin American enterprise.
