The risk of early school leaving after lockdown has assumed ever more alarming proportions in Italy, one of the European countries with the highest rate of early school leavers.
A Print For Our Future is aimed to fight the problem of educational poverty in Italy, supporting Save the Children by selling 100% silk scarves, designed and produced in Italy.
‘The talents of made in Italy are at risk. What if the civil involvement of fashion is the very future of fashion? The post-covid 19 will make us more conscious consumers’.
A Print For Future includes six Scarves , three Boxes with exclusive colours and an Art Book.
The scarves are limited edition and can be purchased exclusively on Eppela for a limited time.
The scarves are 100% silk, eco-sustainable, produced in Italy using digital printing technique to minimize the environmental impact.
‘We started to design the prints of these scarves taking inspiration from the architectonic symbols of deserted suburbs like Le vele of Scampia, the zen district of Palermo or some architectures where our past artists had had opportunities even if they had started from a situation of social disadvantage’.
The rewards will be delivered in mid-December, it could be a great charity gift idea for Christmas 2020.
How funds will be used
The effects of Covid-19 will have devastating and permanent consequences on future generations in the next years.
The 20% of the income from the scarves will be donated to Save the Children to support the campaign ‘Light up the future’, through ‘Light Points’, centres and physical spaces which are in local contexts with no services and opportunities.
Indipendent of the success of the campaign, we will donate € 5000 to Save The Children Italy; help us to overcome the first goal of € 25,000 to allocate additional funds to Save The Children Italy.
Together, we can rewrite the future of thousands of children… help us too! Donate now.
Who's behind the project?
The campaign starts thanks to Luigi Veccia’s funding to support Save the Children Italy.
