Escama Studio

Escama purses are impeccably handcrafted from something that most people throw away: recycled pop tabs. An ongoing experiment in sustainability, Escama Studio is based in San Francisco and Brazil. They've worked with the same group of 60 ingenious women artisans since 2004. While their products could be mistaken for items mass-produced by machines, they are not. Each piece is a work of true ingenuity, made one at a time by artisans skilled in a unique Brazilian handicraft.
