Mango for a more sustainable and inclusive design and fashion
The road to a more ethical and sustainable production seems to Mango anything but uphill. Recently the Spanish brand has made its way into the homeware world, proposing a collection of items entirely made of linen.
The minimal and classic design respects the DNA of the brand, to which is added the boundless love and commitment to sustainable fashion. The collection includes items for living room, bedroom and bathroom, but also pajamas, pillows and gowns.
The aesthetic of the collection is permeated by the summer atmosphere of a sunny Mediterranean landscape, a vision very dear to Mango. The goal, however, is not only about the sustainable approach. There is also the will to convey the idea of home, a safe place to experience and grow. A place where the culture and lifestyle of the Mediterranean can match with the commitments made in favor of the planet.
The collection is available on the official website of the brand, as well as for the collection dedicated to women undergoing mastectomy. These creations, mainly tops and swimwear, adhere to the initiative organized by the tetayteta feminist collective.
According to the Spanish Society of Plastic Restorative and Aesthetic Surgery, over 64% of breast cancer involve a mastectomy and only 30% of women undergo a breast reconstruction.
The testimonies collected by the collective have highlighted the frustration that these women feel feeling excluded from the strict rules of clothing. “It looks like you are being forced to buy a prosthetic bra” and “me I don’t want to pretend, I’m not like that”, one can read among the many comments.
Together with the feminist collective, these women have appealed to brands that enjoy wide fame, so that the idea of having only one breast is not simply normalized, but that they are made appropriate bras.
The initiative was spread with the hashtag #massujetadorescomolola (more bras like Lola), the first created with a single cup.
The Mango collection finally responds to this request, proposing itself as an example of fashion not only sustainable, but also more inclusive and fluid, that supports body changes, and that does not leave alone.
