“WE ARE THE GUARDIANS, NOT THE OWNERS OF THINGS” SOMERS, 2013
D – RAÍZ
D-RAÍZ is a Galician sustainable fashion accessories company and a multi-brand store that appreciates craftsmanship, locally produced, done with passion and affection.
It is a tool to express an identity, to reach out to others.
A creative process that involves design, art, cinema, theater, music, philosophy… Refined aesthetic, design and quality materials are part of its DNA. Limited editions of timeless designs. Committed to the philosophy of sustainable manufacture made in Spain and consistent with the use of natural resources, thus reducing the environmental impact.
Contemporary designs closely aligned with tradition and handmade. In collaboration with local artisans, building relations of mutual value with a broader scope such as human development, social equity and environmental care. Local manufacture. Small-scale or made-to-order production. A business model far from the classic fashion calendar. A clear and transparent narrative. Full traceability of the supply chain and processes. On the way towards sustainable fashion.
A circular model of ecodesign with a special focus on the complete cycle of production and the entire product lifetime. Striving for the minimal environmental impact at every stage. Fostering reuse or recycling without compromising functionality or quality. D-RAÍZ only uses single fiber, virgin, organic or recovered materials in its designs. Minimalist and timeless pieces that are not subject to the dictatorship of fashion trends.
Raw materials of plant origin such as Piñatex, made from pineapple leaf fiber. Biomaterials such as Malai, made from compostable coconut fiber. Fabrics recovered from untapped stocks. Organic cotton, linen, tencel or hemp. D-RAÍZ embodies its designs in sustainable materials in close collaboration with local suppliers. Adding details in wood or ceramic that enhance the craftsmanship process.
