All Brescia Bercane’s products are made in Indonesia and the majority of them by local artisans in Bali.
Fabric printing and design is the core of our business. New printed fabrics and the products result from teamwork between specialists/artisans in different fields and the designer herself.
Today, we are taking part of the movement #whomademyclothes? and we want to make our company completely transparent. Transparency means company knows who makes their clothes (from who stitched them right through to who dyed the fabric) and under what conditions. So, we believe this simple question gets people thinking differently about what they wear. We need to know that as consumers, our questions, our voices, our shopping habits can have the power to help change things for the better.
With more consumers encouraging us to answer ‘who made my clothes?’, we believe Fashion Revolution has the power to push the industry to be more transparent.
We also think that the people who make our products deserve to be celebrated:
For our swimwear production, we are working with a company in Indonesia that has built their factory using International Green Regulations (LEED). They believe it is highly important to respect the environment and maintain the local beauty of the area where they have built the factory. They use natural ventilations and day lighting as they can save lights and air conditioners energy. They have a recycling program – even of rain water – but also a training to raise awareness of environmentally responsible behaviour. Moreover, 30% of area is covered with trees, green roofs and upstair gardens.
Putu and her husband Ketut are living and working in the North of Bali, a region called Singaraja. They make with love our sarongs, scarves and clothes in their atelier. Also, Ketut is embroidering by hand our unique cushions and wool tassels.
