WHO I AM
GET TO KNOW ME A LITTLE
My name is Andrea, I'm the one who puts the face to Lua Moda Eco-chic and the one you can see in the photo.
- Why organic, vegan, ethical and sustainable products?
The ecological world or the ecological revolution is not something new, we have always reused glass bottles or boxes to avoid overpaying for products... Then we became comfortable, society changed and without thinking about it we all changed. I've always been the odd one out with the jars at home or the coloured bins...
In relation to the clothes, I fell in love with how the small ateliers work, where each seamstress matters, since, in this profession, mostly of women, they saw that they could no longer practice their profession in Spain and our neighbouring country Portugal, absurd, isn't it?
When I first tried handmade clothing it was a wonderful feeling, its fabrics, textures and what it meant to me made my decision. My path towards organic had to lead me here. From there it was born LUA MODA ECO-CHIC.
We use only the right amount of water to make our garments, because water matters, we reuse as much fabric as possible, because the world matters, we don't use anything that involves the suffering of animals, because animals matter to us, CRUELTY FREE.
- Which FABRICS do we use? Organic cotton, tencel, recycled materials, vegan-vegetable leather, bamboo fibre, pineapple or orange fibre, among others... Or at the same time we work with very small workshops, they buy fabrics in factories that other firms or companies that work on a large scale cannot use, because they could not do mass textile manufacturing. And believe me, with those fabrics the atelier makes wonderful things.
I work with all of them on demand, that's why the pieces you buy at Lua Moda Eco-chic are unique.
- How did I get here? Well, I come from a generation where since I was a child, both in society and unconsciously at home, I have been taught to serve and submit to others, to obey. We have to have values, where we are all important, animals, people... THE WORLD NEEDS CHANGE NOW.
With all this I have shown myself that we can all do it, that we set the limits, not life, and that change is possible!
It is in our hands, every gesture matters, no matter how small.
