Slow Innovation Brands
Attending any of our programs you became part of our sustainable maker's community.
Workshops about fashion innovation, guided visit to factories, contact with eco textile suppliers and stores, private networking events with partners and investors, pitch events, contests, crowdfunding helping, coworking days, outdoor activities such as trekking and hiking, meditations, yoga and much more.
We are committed to helping you not only create a sustainable fashion brand and eco-products. But also to create new concepts and things that people really need. In the present days, we have too many things and we have to buy in a conscious way. That is why we work hard not only in the sustainable market research but also in the social and environmental study impacts, to see what really is missing in the offers already in the market. We don’t want just innovation, we want the innovation necessary for a better world and this includes the valorization of traditional techniques and the work of local artisans.
