As a result, at Rebel Root every single item we produce and sell has the highest standards of Certified Fair Trade. This ensures that everyone, from the smallest workshop in a developing country to a small studio trying to survive the economic pressure of today’s economy, is treated fairly. We ensure that their payments are fair, making sure that any revenue goes to them directly, improving their quality of life and maintaining their traditional techniques. This makes our design pieces, transcend their functional purpose and provide an emotional connection between you and the people involved in creating it. You are wearing their quality of life, their culture and future.
Rebel Root was founded by Eva Riu in Late 2012. With a strong graphic design background, she majored in Illustration and Fashion design at the Central Saint Martins London University of Arts.
Her first endeavour was The Mystic Onion, a fashion brand that received many accolades, walked the runway at the renowned Madrid Fashion Week (Pasarela Cibeles), as well as taking part in many industry runways shows, leading to international distribution of its pieces.
Beyond the protection of the environment, Rebel Root believes in the protection of knowledge.
Everything done at Rebel Root is based on recognizing and helping conserve the traditional techniques and artistic sensibility of those who are involved in creating our pieces. This is why our productions are small, very limited edition, ensuring sustainability and supporting the uniqueness of the items we develop.
