As a local brand from Puerto Rico, here at Valija, our love for our island and the planet has pushed us towards becoming a more sustainable company in any way that we can. From reusing and recycling paper/cardboard in all our stores and HQ to buying in smaller quantities and creating smaller batches of clothes. We’ve also eliminated plastic checkout bags! But maybe, the initiative that excites us the most is our Zero Waste Collection (learn more here). Being able to create beautiful pieces from our leftover scraps of fabric has not only been a great eco-conscious move, but it has been a very fun creative process too! Within that process we realized that maybe, we could make multi-purpose articles of clothing the same way we’ve given different uses to other materials we’ve had in our stores and offices.
In today’s global climate, we need to make the most of everything and that includes your clothes! Thus…two new Zero Waste pieces were born:
Sustainability and style mixed with a whole lot of versatility. You can wear our newest addition to the Zero Waste Collection as a top, crop, bra, scarf… you name it!
A sustainable choice that’s a perfect fit for your lifestyle. This multi-use Zero Waste skirt will follow you everywhere you go. As a skirt or a coverup. A little blanket to lie on or even a dress. This skirt is a beachwear must-have!
Our #ValijaGirl Daymaris Durand (@daymarisdurand) shows us all the ways you can wear the Square Scarf!
