Marita Moreno is a portuguese label of fashion accessories and it was created with an unique and ethical perspective, in which the history of the products is fundamental for its definition as a "slow fashion" brand. Our products uses local and national endogenous resources, artisanal and industrial, and is constantly in search of how it can create and produce design objects with history that are used in everyday life. Ethics, transparency in the production and social responsibility have always been intrinsic values to the brand. From the creation of the Vegan line in the summer of 2017 we started to look at our environmental responsibility as a company and the importance of producing a sustainable way of thinking about the environment and the world we live in. It was a mindset changing for us.
That's why from SS18 collection we´ve started to work to become a sustainable brand.
We care about the creative process and our models are made to last. We use quality materials when producing our products for greater durability of the items and we add a timeless design that avoids fashion trends which would imply shorter life cycles to the products.
All products from Marita Moreno Limited are numbered and belong to a limited series of a maximum of 100 pieces, wich give to our costumer uniqueness and exclusiveness about the pieces. It follows the same ethics of the brand, we only work with sustainable materials in the production of the products - We only use labor and Portuguese manufacture in the creation of the pieces - and we use the texture of the materials and colors as fundamental elements in the creation of a geometric and sculptural design.
The brand celebrates also the unique through the power of customization. We love it when our customers challenge us with different ideas in the combination of materials, colors and textures. All the products are Portuguese, as well as the production quality "Made in Portugal"
We work with a craftsman who made our handmade bags, certified artisans who made handmade weaving especially for our brand and a small family factory and we have a close relationship with the suppliers who provide the raw material we use to make our products.
