At Harebell, there’s a specific reason we choose each brand we work with:
They all have (or try to have) a zero carbon footprint.
They are as responsible as they can be in terms of consumption and waste (zero waste).
They all think of their products as what they really are: little works of art, unique and irreproducible. They’re all the result of creative people.
They all use sustainable processes to create their masterpieces.
They all work with their local communities.
We like all of them a lot.
We like ALL of them a lot! Are we repeating ourselves? It’s because we like ALL of them a whole lot!! Seriously!!! And even though they all have things in common, each brand has its own history and idiosyncrasies, a hint of “pixie dust” that gives them their own distinctive magic. Come along and I’ll tell you more:
With a clear mission to keep plastic fabrics within the loop (and not in landfills), Lucas creates the most unique and colorful wind coats and accessories. He uses parachutes and paragliders for raw material. He picks them up from different places in the world wherever and whenever they are available. The transformation happens in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Surrounded by the mountain ranges of Córdoba in Argentina, Emilia Coleoni Ferrari finds inspiration in the colors and textures of the nature that surrounds her to create clothing with fabrics that are healthier and more compatible with our skin, like the ones sourced from Hilandería Warmi (llama wool and cotton). Slow, responsible, and genderless: this is the road that Humano decided to take, a road we are happy to take with them.
Ethical and sustainable fashion, generating triple impact; socially, by training and employing vulnerable sectors of the population; environmentally, by retrieving recycled materials; and economically, by producing high-quality clothing. A favorite: the Dairy Collection, made of milk sachets.
The name says it all, right? Vegan shoes (no leather or other materials of animal origin), and they’re called Boobamara. PETA friendly footwear that began in two mini-stores in the “Puerto de Frutos” of Tigre in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The creator, Andrea de Lacovo, makes shoes with discarded industrial textiles, jute from coffee bags, and even the surplus generated in her own shop.
What is waste? A company’s old advertising poster? An orange security fence? Sun shade cloth from a patio? The old surplus scraps from making clothes? For Carro, none of this is waste, but raw material. This is how they work from their shop in Buenos Aires, Argentina, creating bags with non-conventional and recovered materials.
Agustina Comas traveled from her native Uruguay to São Paulo, Brasil, in search of adventure in the world of fashion. But instead of waiting around to find it, she created her own by re-imagining discarded clothes, re-thinking production, and reducing waste. A versatile, non-binary upcycling offer with a little Southern Cone swagger.
All the way from Argentina, Alejandra Gotelli develops timeless triple impact textiles to protect native flora and fauna. Camelid hair and wildlife friendly sheep’s wool from Peninsula de Valdes in Patagonia. Hyper concerned with fair commerce and transparent practices, Alejandra personally visits the shears from where she sources the hair and wool for her designs. A perfect balance between commitment and charm. We love her designs.
They rescue from the past, dress for the present and work for the future. It couldn’t be clearer if it was water, which they’d never waste! A genius that upcycles out-of-style clothes and transforms them into stylish pieces. Timeless and genderless, responsible one of a kind productions.
More than 15 years make this very artistic and community-based project a favorite. Their designs upcycle everything from soccer shirts to old coats into new, trendy and fashionable items. This Chile-based brand has only high quality and durable items to lower the impact and footprint.
From Buenos Aires, Argentina, Laura Echaniz, is the right person at the right time: she was the recipient of the surplus and scraps of one of the last textile factories in the city; including jacquards, Gobelin tapestry, and artisans’ hand-painted silks from the ’70s and ’80s. Echaniz makes their selection from the rescued fabrics and adapts them to whatever they need to create. No piece of clothing is like another: fraternal twins maybe, but not identical.
From Mexico, Beaumaris Eilean started Eilean Couture in 2012 but really came into its own when it transformed into the Eilean Brand in 2016. An organic and sustainable fashion brand that seeks to lower its environmental impact with zero-waste processes, empower women with clothes for women and by women, size-free and healthy fabrics which are good for the skin, plant and essentially the mind and soul.
Bliss collection goes deep into our core and feels right. We planned this capsule thinking of nature and the life cycle of each garment. All of the pieces are compostable and naturally dyed, respecting earth’s rhythms and cycles. Welcome to your new favorite, nature based closet!
About the designer
María Paz Romero
From the depths of Uruguayan nature, connected to the wool, the colors of the earth, the scent of the trees, and with the strength of the feminine, María Paz Romero creates beautiful designs with a natural flow. She uses only natural dyes to create unique pieces of clothing that are artisanally crafted and filled with chic, rustic energy.
BioExistance is a capsule made with the intention of re-enforcing the Universe’s invitation to exist. By doing so, we feel and answer to that call through the art of design. Respecting the plenty and amazing fibers nature provides. Fully compostable and plant based. Soft and modern. Cruelty free and genderless always. The greek influence was a coincidence (or maybe not), but we loved feeling the goddess vibes while seeing the end result of every item. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

From Roca, Río Negro, in Argentine Patagonia, Juan Cruz Licitra integrates his surroundings into experimental jewelry pieces made from eco-friendly resin, wood, flowers, branches, and seeds that come together to reveal their secrets from "the end of the world."

You get Juan Pablo Martínez, who – with scraps of fabric and recycled cotton – looks to create zero waste fashion that combines talent, rock, and sustainability. A triple impact gentleman that works with stitchers head of household.
Patricia is an amazing activist and powerful woman. A magician. She created her brand to strengthen and empower the collective of indigenous women in the Brazilian Amazon jungle. Kanutsi’s products are made by the native Xingu community and of neighboring ethnic groups. The workers are women who preserve textile heritage in their community and do not know how to use the internet, but Patricia learned. She acts as a link, showing the world her drawings that were painted on the body of the tribe's inhabitants on festive and / or religious days, showing their ancestral wisdom to the world.
From Uruguay or Colombia? Eleonora Mesa traveled from Uruguay to Medellín, where she set up shop – in a perfect example of circular economy – to transform old, stained, discarded, or simply out-of-style clothes into the most beautiful handbags and backpacks you can imagine. Sustainable raw material, infinite talent.
Closed loop and traceability at its best. This Catamarca based company pours Argentinian Andes traditional designs. Llama and Merino Sheep Ponchos are only a part of this brand's universe. They are cruelty-free, they re-insert llamas into ecosystems where they are native (and needed). They own the threading company as well to ensure the highest quality materials as well as honest dignifying work conditions.
Verónika Sálomon created the first carbon-neutral jewelry of the world in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Together with her mother, Marta Lía Sánchez, they transform and give new life to materials and textiles (yes, textiles!) to make jewelry that’s pure magic. Our recommendation: the chokers and necklaces made with recycled denim.
Many know Argentina for its great leather, but few know that in Buenos Aires, N°52 makes the most gorgeous shoes and handbags that have the finish and durability of leather but are made with sustainable, plant-based textiles, based on upcycling techniques and circular fashion. Leather that’s not leather, it’s piñatex: pineapple leather!
