REFAZEMOS O MUNDO, REFAZENDO A MODA! Desde a concepção, a Refazenda carrega em seu DNA o ideal da sustentabilidade. Tudo começou há quase 32 anos, quando, incomodada com o formato como então se conhecia a indústria do vestuário, Magna Coeli pensou num modelo de negócio vanguardista, mesmo para os tempos de hoje. A ideia da estilista foi criar um novo estilo de comportamento, aliado ao planejamento de todo o material usado no ciclo, inclusive as até então indesejadas sobras. Mas não era simplesmente reciclar: um modelo de produção sustentável, como o próprio conceito sugere, precisava se bastar em todos os processos da marca. Era necessário fechar o ciclo, lançar mão de uma economia genuinamente circular, em que 100% da matéria-prima fosse utilizada dentro do seu propósito de existir, selando parcerias com artesãos e pequenos produtores locais, agregando, assim, alta qualidade, design inovador, conteúdo técnico-cultural, atemporalidade e afetividade.
