With 2020 in the house, we asked Elementum founder and designer Daniela Pais to share with us her thoughts about the new year and reflect with us on January, the time for new beginnings. She took us back to her back, to the start of 2007 and to the beginning of Elementum - her Master's thesis 'Clothing Species'.
We had a chance to meet Leonor and her inspiring studio in Porto. After few works as Graphic and Textile designer ELLEONOR started her solo project in 2014, as Designer and Artist, followed by the curiosity and exploration of different areas of creation, strong colors and irregular shapes... We completely fell in love with her work...

Sustainable fashion is about more than just organic cotton. From the fabrics we source to the packaging we use, to the way we make our clothes, we’re working to minimize the negative impact the fashion industry has on our planet. We believe in slow fashion, buying fewer and better, sourcing materials with respect for the earth, transparent supply chains, and valuing the people involved at every stage of the production process.
