We are Vera & Joana, and we created FUZZYEYE not only for you but for your children, grand-children... We believe we are creating the vintage for the future generations, that piece that you found at the end of your mom's or dad's closet and feel so proud to use, 'cause you know it has so many stories to tell. We are not selling only clothes, we are selling emotions, shows, travels, music, love, dreams (...). We wanted to create something inspired in the 60's & 70's psychedelic rock culture and then add our own new and fresh twist. We wanted to create something that was different from everything else, something that is not trendy but is the expression of your inner self. Because of this and the fact that our products are made from leftover leather, every piece is unique, we don't make two of the same. We are very passionate of what we do, our products are carefully designed by us and made in Portugal by craftsman and local manufacturing, under our eye. We believe and are proudly committed to fair trade. This is not just a clothing brand, it's a way of living with passion, love and lots of fuzz.
aiming for a better world
Our leather products are handcrafted from post-production waste, rejected leathers from massive productions and old leather that are out of fashion. That's also why our products are unique and we barely make two of the same. We don't produce leather, we don't buy it new. We work with what we can find. Basically we are using the leather that otherwise would have gone to waste. Because of this, our products are not only exclusive, unique and have a soft worn-in feel – they are also a more sustainable alternative to newly produced leather garment and plastic-based faux leather.
We are very far from being mass production business, fast fashion concept, we never aimed for that, in fact we are very much against those kind of production. That's also why we keep our production local and handmade. We search for the leather pieces ourselves, design them, then Vera cuts them and we take it to Ana Paula, the sewer. Because of this, and the fact we use leftovers leather, you can experience some defects on the leather products which makes them more real and human! We also make wallets and pick holders from the vests, bags and jackets leftovers, so we lower the waste of leather.
Our shirts and t-shirts are also made from existing fabrics, leftovers from bigger productions, vintage fabrics or fabrics that are out of fashion. We don't dye fabrics, we dig deep and search for the right color out of what already exists. The productions are made in small business companies in Barcelos, Portugal. We want to make sure that our products are made in a fair and good working environment. We believe that our products carry a lot of passion and love from the moment that they are designed until they get to you to provide the most happy moments! We really care about the world we live in and we want to contribute for a better one. Support your locals!
with all of our love, for fuzz lovers.
