At Bottletop a large portion of our work takes place in Latin America. It is in Brazil that our accessories are produced and here that the benefits from funding though the Bottletop Foundation are also felt, with our health education programmes for young people in Salvador and Sao Paulo.
It is therefore with pride and gratitude that we recently accepted the award for Best Sustainable Luxury Performance in Latin America for fashion and accessories in 2012, which was kindly given to us by the Center for Studies on Sustainable Luxury.
The centre, based in Buenos Aires, looks at paradigm shifts in the luxury market – that is how conceptions of luxury are changing. This is one of our main interests at Bottletop (as you can see from our previous blog posts) so we are happy to be seen as contributing to positive progress in the luxury industries.
As the production and consumption of luxury products continues to move towards a more responsible, sustainable and honest approach, we intend to remain at the fore of full-circle thinking about giving something back without giving up the little things that we love.
