The festive season is just around the corner and all of us have chalked out plans to celebrate it in our own way. I’m calling out to my nomadic souls who are still indecisive about their new adventure destination; I’d love to suggest you take a tour of the “spellbinding Spain”.
Spain, unlike her neighbors, enjoys a warmer climate along with a fascinating history, both of them have always attracted gadabouts to this soccer-obsessed land. The land which has captivating citadels, stories of sorcery and a conglomeration of cultures is now topping the charts as the healthiest nation on the planet in a study carried by Bloomberg. That’s not all! Spain is also equally worried about the health of the planet. Here are a few “green fashion” brands that are so very Spanish!!
Pla: “Shoe” it off
Pla brand is not just reviving traditional arts of Spain but also empowering women across the globe. The brand uses 100% organic raw materials that are grown by women in Asian countries and utilizes them to create handmade goods like- handbags and especially shoes. With their incredible skill and care, the craftswomen form each shoe from a single jute braid. They hand-sewn each turn of the previous braid joining a cotton lining to the inside of the shoe for a more comfortable fit and they are given the finish at Majorca.
Ecoalf: “Because” we need it:-
