An ethic commitment
To Rafaela Garcia, design accessories that make sens with products that make sens is an evidence. Caramel & cie works with independent workshops in Vietnam. Why independent workshops and not factories? Because they train and employ seamstresses and leathers goods that exercise a handicraft job allowing them to acquire a financial independence from huge factories that repeat everyday same gestures on same pieces of fabric.
Each year, Rafaela goes to Vietnam to supervise workshops selection that will realize the production of her satchels, bags, and back packs.
