Cartiera / Ethical fashion enterpirse

Cartiera is a social cooperative that aims to structure integration processes through work: through the creation and sale of leather products made from the scraps of the high fashion industry in a logic of circular economy, Cartiera promotes training courses and job placement for people in condition of economic hardship, in particular asylum seekers.
The inclusion of disadvantaged workers, the criteria for the supply of raw materials, the collaboration with large companies in the fashion sector, the links with the local community and the countries of origin of migrations combine to define the innovative and multilevel character of the project
