2015 – Beans in Construction

Contextura’s “Feijão na Construção” collection is inspired by beans and their importance to Brazilians.

The verb catar assumes the meaning of choosing. Because picking beans is like picking up words, choosing, collecting, removing what is not beans or what is not good beans, just as removing the word that is not adequate or is not a good word.

For us at Contextura, our “pick up beans” is “pick up waste” and other expressive materials, always seeking reuse as a creative logic of sustainable fashion.
