Elisa Cartocci - Bosque das Mangueiras


Bosque Das Mangueiras

Cabella Ligure, Italy

“We believe in the importance of a collective shift in how we produce and consume; to buy less and better things that we can love, care for, and later pass on to the next generation.”

Through her collections and designs, Elisa Cartocci pays homage to the rich cultural heritage and craftsmanship of Brazil, India and Italy: the countries where she grew up and shaped her vision and creativity.

All-around sustainability

Bosque das Mangueiras is all about the sustainability of the production line, starting from the choice of the fabric, to the hand-painted prints, printed in Como (Italy) with the certification SERI.CO and up to the small women-led workshops in Serravalle Scrivia, where each garment is sewn with love and attention. The whole production line is entirely made in Italy.

You might wonder...

Linen is a perfect option because its manufacturing is respectful of the environment since it does not require the use of much water or softeners, thus preserving our natural resources. Not only does linen biodegrade quickly, but it’s also a zero-waste product as all parts of the flax plant can be used. Whilst the fibres are turned into textiles for interior or clothing or paper, the flax seeds – which are linseeds – can be used to make vegetable oils or flour or for herbal remedies.
Moreover, linen fibre does not come from an exotic plant. It is mainly grown in the North-Western European countries, where Bosque artisans have magic at their fingertips. The linen fibre is spun and weaved intricately to create a soft and resilient garment endowed with character and form.

In addition, linen offers the best compromise between freshness and the ability to maintain constant heat, antibacterial and hypoallergenic. It guarantees excellent tolerance even to the most sensitive skin. It offers the highest grade of water and humidity absorption combined with the highest level of transpiration and ventilation.
