UMA X offers sustainable products with unique, minimalist and contemporary design. It's a timeless, gender-inclusive and responsible easy-wear, offering more transparency, valuing local production and reaching a conscious development cycle.
The project aims to reduce environmental impact by using internationally certified* fibers and fabrics created from processes that recycle, create less CO2 emissions and use less water.
Uma X is a collaborative project that aims to be meaningful in its concepts, transparent in the processes and responsible in its cycle. All this in the attempt to create genderless, modern and comfortable pieces made from eco-friendly processes.
In a collaborative sense, the letter X in UMA X comes precisely as a place to be appropriated. In the purpose of experimenting and talking to the public, it refers to an unknown space that will be occupied by partnerships in each new drop. We will not have a fixed calendar nor will we be based on seasonality. To learn more about our collaborations, click here.
We have a local production all held in São Paulo, Brazil. We value fair working relationships and support local craftsmen. Our social commitment is reinforced through the partnership with PECP, the Einstein Program in the Paraisópolis Community, which, since 1998, has developed activities related to health and education in an integrated way. Part of UMA X's sales is destined to the training program in cutting and sewing, that help new professionals in Paraisópolis to enter the national fashion market and be socially included.
Working with responsible fabrics and certified suppliers, all Uma X pieces carry some type of sustainable innovation, such as saving water in the finishing process, biodegradable procedures or reducing virgin raw materials and chemicals. This information is given on the labels of each piece, where we disclose information about origin, supplier, certification and other elements about the materials, in order to create a transparent relationship with the customer.
