<< ... I believe in Bio. It is not just a play on words, but a deep feeling that has changed the lives of Elena and Marco Mosca, which were farm workers and now have become entrepreneurs of organic clothing under the brand name "Altramoda." "We started in 2009 with a small shop in Fossombrone, in the Marches, where we sold mainly cloth diapers. We have always believed in a choice of ecological life - says Marco Mosca - even when we earned very little, and we had a small child. Attention was now high and our turnover has been growing steadily, especially since our line "Altramoda" is also on sale online. But our clothings are not only natural: they follow a chain that must ensure and certify that those who produce them is not exploited, but are treated in an ethical and fair manner. "
The clothes are made of organic cotton, hemp, bamboo fiber, wool comes from sheep farms "eco", the colors are natural, the zip and metal parts are nickel-free, and next to many clothings in altramoda web site you reads, 'made in India, with love. "
"It means: this shirt or sweatshirt - adds Marco Mosca - was stitched according to a work ethic and guaranteed right." And because the business grows, still tell the creators of "Altramoda", "once worn those types of fibers, pure cottons, you are no longer able to go back."
But the Bio is interesting because it is perhaps the area that experiences more forms of trade between the most diverse, companies with direct sales to markets, the Gas, the joint buying groups, sites of e-commerce...>>
