Venezia Collection - Chapter I
We just arrived in Venice, and we will be there for a month!
About a Worker is excited to announce its newest collaboration with prisoners from the “Casa di reclusione femminile”, a prison for women located on the Giudecca island, inside the Venetian lagoon, far from all the touristic attractions.
The four prisoners involved in this second collaboration currently work for the “Sartoria”, the sewing workshop from the prison. This workshop was established by Il Cerchio in 1997, a cooperative giving prisoners the chance to find a voice for their future through various working opportunities and activities.
In the Sartoria, the prisoners retouch fabrics for the prison, produce tailor-made costumes for the carnival, but also ready-to-wear clothes for “ Banco Lotto n*10”, the fashion brand from the cooperative.
We will be showcasing the development of the second collection and our Venetian adventures on this blog.
