90×90 scarf in fine Italian silk produced and sewn in one of the workshops of the Cooperative Alice in Milan, a non-profit cooperative seeking to build an inclusive society that empowers individuals and supports sustainable development through craftsmanship and ethics.
The Cooperative is active in the detention facilities of San Vittore, Bollate, Monza, in which oversees the labour re-integration of female inmates through the external laboratory Sartoria San Vittore, which also welcomes those who emerge from situations of violence and difficulty.
The project carried out for Breast Cancer Awareness Month goes hand in hand with the collaboration between Laura Portomeo, founder of the brand, and the Association FraParentesi, which for years has been supporting oncological patients sharing a new way to see life after the diagnosis, as a parenthesis and not as the main aspect of it, giving hope to those starting the journey and those already walking the path. Through the website and an ever-expanding network of professionals, the Association offers answers, in-depth analysis, ideas and services to support people facing the diagnosis and their families.
Laura Portomeo is part of this beautiful support network, providing her expertise in the field of Make Up and Skincare with articles, videos and lessons, in order to bring help and comfort to women who live with this condition.
