"It's hard to get what we need, but we don't stop if there's something we can't find. When that happens we change the scope, even the product. To prevent us from depending on imports, we use everything we can find in the local market, from discarded materials, to trash. That's the core of the Vintrashe collection, which means vintage + trash. Here in Havana, it's all about diving in all of those secondhand stores (Salvation Army type, but never cool), buying piece by piece, taking them to our shop, and remaking them into tank tops, pouches, handbags, totes, shorts, etc."
