WHO WE ARE

We are a Massachusetts based social enterprise - business created to do good in the world - that provides our customers with products made from environmentally sourced fabrics that are designed to foster dialogue on social justice and environmental issues.

Our company’s name is a mix of Spanish and English — the two most spoken languages in the United States. Our name relates to the Hans Christian Andersen tale, ‘The Emperor’s New Clothing’, about an emperor, emperador in Spanish, and the importance of speaking up and dialogue, which is what we hope to inspire with our products.

To ensure that each product's message is as authentic as the material with which it is made, we source environmentally responsible fabrics via our production partnership with tonlé. See below for more information.

 
 

PRODUCTION PARTNERSHIP - TONLÉ

In a world dominated by the ‘fast fashion’, we partner with tonlé to offer our customers an alternative to the wasteful ‘fast fashion’ industry and its unjust working standards. All of our products are made with recycled and remnant fabrics by tonlé which operates under a ‘zero-waste’ production process. Our production partnership with tonlé ensures our customers that all of our products are hand-sewn by people who receive above average, fair wages as well as work in safe labor conditions. 

See video below to learn more about tonlé and understand the social and environmental added value they provide our company and all of our customers.
