The story of
All of Trace Collective's pieces are produced solely with fabrics sourced from regenerative agriculture farms that help sequester carbon from the atmosphere and rebuild soil fertility. All of our clothes are also radically transparent on origin, impact and production costs, so that you can reconnect with the stories behind the pieces that you buy.
We manufacture at an artisan workshop in Spain that supports women at risk re-enter the workforce, ensuring not only the highest finishings and production qualities available in the market, but also that our clothes carry stories of social impact and women empowerment.
We are a social business at heart, and our corporate governance reflects that. We donate 25% of our profits to our non-profit Trace Planet, which controls the mission and impact of the fashion brand and runs educational programs on environmental regeneration and regenerative agriculture.
The future is regenerative. Will you join us?
Antonia and Aroa founded Trace Collective in 2019 with the goal of turning the fashion industry into an engine for environmental regeneration.
Trace Collective is the first fully regenerative fashion brand in the market, crafting circular pieces that help heal our planet and build a better economy.
A story of
The tote bag in your hands
has been produced with organic hemp
sourced from regenerative agriculture farms
where farmers are using their crops
to sequester carbon from the atmosphere
and rebuild soil fertility,
effectively helping us reverse climate change.
Did you know that 1/3 of the planet's land is severely degraded? According to the UN, the equivalent of a football pitch of soil is eroded every 5 seconds, mostly due to intensive agriculture.
Eroded soils release CO2 to the atmosphere, making intensive agriculture one of the main contributors to global warming. They also don't retain water, making flooding and landslides more likely.
But there's a different way. Regenerative agriculture is helping sequester carbon from the atmosphere and store it in our soils, thus increasing soil fertility and helping stabilise our climate.
At Trace Collective, we believe that the future is regenerative, and that the fashion industry can be a driver for environmental regeneration.
All of our pieces are produced solely with fabrics sourced from regenerative agriculture farms that help sequester carbon from the atmosphere and rebuild soil fertility, and all our clothes are radically transparent on their origin, impact and production costs.
We design for circularity and all our products are fully biodegradable. Your tote bag has been manufactured with 100% organic hemp and stitched with GOTS certified organic cotton thread. So that if you ever no longer want your tote bag and cannot pass it on, you can return it to us or bury it in soil, knowing that it'll disappear completely within a few years.
A story of
The tote bag in your hands
was manufactured and screen printed in Spain
contributing to a social economy
that supports women at risk
and preserves local craftsmanship.
Your bag was produced at the Emili Papirer workshop in Spain, a project run by non-profit organization Fundació Roure.
Our workshop provides training and employment opportunities for women at risk and supports them holistically so that they can live more independent and fulfilled lives, something that is the core mission of Fundació Roure.
All the profits from the Emili Papirer workshop are re-invested in the other projects run by non-profit Fundació Roure. To learn more about their work, visit their website: www.fundacioroure.org.
The screen printing was done by hand by Taller Baobag, an artisanal workshop in Spain that hand crafts all their biodegradable inks from organic products.
We fell in love with their fair trade values and their unique craftsmanship. To learn more about their work, visit their website: www.tallerbaobag.es.
