Why Da-Lata

Da-Lata’s products are original, unique and elegant. Each one of their bags carries a big history behind, a lot of work and a better life for many people. If you want to outstand, try on any of their products and feel the pulse of Brasil and its people.

Ecology of the ring pulls

These cans are collected by small armies of people knows as “catadores”, (Brazilian for "can pickers") who are part of a larger sector known as waste-picking. Such activities are now recognized officially as occupations and supported by the Brazilian government. This acceptance and legalization has allowed many disadvantaged people to earn money by collecting cans left on the beaches and bars everywhere.

The ring pulls are separated from the cans and large bin bags are filled with them. The "good ring pulls" – those that are not stained, dirty or broken – are then selected.

Da-Lata transforms humble ring pulls into contemporary classics. Each item is handmade using hundreds, even thousands of ring pulls. Da-Lata works directly with Brazilian women artisans, with difficult backgrounds but an amazing gift. These ladies select, clean and flatten the ring pulls with pliers to make them safe and comfortable to wear before they start linking them with crochet techniques. This work provides them with stability and higher incomes in return for their amazing workmanship.
