THE BEAUTY FROM NATURE
To stop damaging our planet we are doing something back. Thats why we use mainly organic fabrics. We strive to make everything out of organic and recycled materials. Our leathers are a 'by-product' from the farming and fishing industry. So there's no waste.
NORDIC FISH LEATHER
Once the skins are removed, most of them end up as waste. Over 20 years Nordic Fish Leather is the supplier that worked on solutions to turn this neglected high-quality raw material into a nice product. The results can be seen back in our products.
But thats not all. Nordic Fish Leather uses only renewable energy for its production. 100% of the electricity supply is from a Hydro Electric power plant. The warm water derives from hot springs close to the town where the factory is located. The total power usage is therefore CO2 neutral.
GIVING BACK TO THE OCEAN
In the past we have done projects to support local foundations in Barcelona. From clean ups to donations. Hopefully we can do something again soon. If you're a foundations that does something for the ocean don't hesitate to contact us.
THE NETHERLANDS, BANGLADESH, CHINA & PORTUGAL
The garments are made in different country's. Every country is specialized in making different garments. The most samples are made in the atelier in The Netherlands. The pieces are made by hand and tested directly on the models. Through this way we can make fast adjustments. Further, all the leather products are handmade in the atelier.
The direct communications between the design department and the factories is a key for the quality of the garments.
Barcelonete is very thankful for all the people who made the brand great.
