Made in California and Brazil
The word “escama” means “fish scales” in Portuguese; the name was chosen because their flagship product – crocheted accessories with post-consumer pull tabs – appears as if they’re made from big metallic scales of fish. To achieve their unique aesthetic, the Escama studio team adapted traditional Brazilian crochet work and imbued the handsome crafts with a modern design sense and new materials. With designs originating from both San Francisco and Brazil, the pop tag bags are handmade in Brazil by artisan groups. Each piece comes with a hangtag bearing the signature of the person who made it. You can read more about this artisan at www.escamastudio.com where you can even create a personalized message to them.
