Mônica Gonçalves, Casa Grigi, and In.filo are part of our community of sustainable makers and are partners in the incubation and mentoring program in fashion and sustainable design of Slow Innovation Brands. Mônica has been working on the development of new sustainable materials such as cork yarn and banana leather.
We intend to use a residue of the banana production, its pseudostem, as a substitute of the card, due to the high structural similarity between both materials. Banana Box is, therefore, the name of this concept: the "box" that contains all the possible applications of concretizing with the banana tree’s pseudostem.
Here it goes a few calls for startups and open competitions. Once per month, we will be sharing the new open call with our students. We hope you will compete and that you will be the winner of many of them. Count on us for all the support you need!
Are interested in cork yarn and want to learn more about the applications you can do with it in the fashion ethics industry? Join our community of sustainable makers. You can join our team of students and researchers to learn more about sustainable fashion innovation by applying their knowledge to real products.

The Slow Innovation Brands sustainable fashion incubator aims to promote ethical and sustainable fashion innovation of local brands.
