Tropic of C announced today a new collab: “Empowerment is at the center of our values.
Since the start, we have commissioned accessories and other items from artisan groups throughout south america. we are excited to build upon these projects with a new collaboration with sophie anderson, a pioneer of ethical and sustainable luxury.
Together we designed and produced a capsule of tops hand crocheted by Sophie Anderson’s artisan teams in Northern Peru.
Sophie Anderson works directly with a social enterprise that provides ongoing training and infrastructure while promoting entrepreneurship and independence in indigenous artisan communities. Their artisan partners are all women, who due to poverty and geographic isolation lack direct access to globalized markets and opportunities to make a living.
These pieces not only celebrate and preserve their traditional craft but they help support sustainable social impact in their communities.
Besides helping the artisans make a living, with our collaboration they have learned new skills that enable them to manage themselves, be more entrepreneurial and have greater self-confidence.” The collab will drop on March 16th at tropicofc.com
The pieces are: vibe top in rasta superstar ($100), south pacific top in kelly green ($125) and south pacific top in white ($125)
The collaboration will be avalaible on March 16th.
