SOMOS by CocoNuco
SOMOS is the handmade clothing collection of CocoNuco, specializing in botanical dyes and sustainable fashion.
Most creations are wildly crafted in small batches, naturally dyed by hand with locally foraged plant matter, and filled with ingredients that love you back. All goods are stitched together from natural fibers, folk fabric, hand printed textiles, or salvaged materials.
CocoNuco creates one of a kind conceptual pieces for seasonal collections.
In the age of witches, charmers would soak their undergarments alchemical baths and hold them to the most intimate parts of their bodies. The layers we intertwine into our worlds should be infused with healing intentions, strength, and love. There is luxury and enchantment in an aged object that emerged from an energetic creation through the long layered natural dye process.
A M A N T E is a collection of intimates, a poem of fiber and botanical color, an overlap in history and intention, a nostalgic relationship with Earth. Each garment is handmade from natural fibers and hand dyed with locally grown pigments from our neighbors, such as Luck Flower Farm and Flora.
