Mexican born designer Carla Fernandez, founder of Taller Flora, has a style that merges old with new, simple with complex, and tradition with forward-thinking. Fernandez developed and launched a mobile fashion lab that travels all over Mexico and sets up workshops in indigenous communities with cooperatives that handcraft textiles. Her mission is not just about creating beautiful clothing, it extends beyond that to address environmental concerns and most importantly, to improve the lives of people, significantly enriching their lives and the lives of their families as well as wholly improving their communities.

Renouve was born out of a desire for a hand lotion that eliminates germs and maintains youthful skin without leaving hands at the mercy of devitalizing ingredients such as alcohol (which dries the skin and leaves it more susceptible to bacteria) or triclosan (shown to have negative health effects). The lotion contains Bitter Orange Peel Extract, a certified organic antibacterial free of alcohol and parabens. We like the fact they make efforts to reduce their waste and water usage, as well as using organic ingredients.
