Brand Story

Born in London, worn globally, Cassandro is resortwear with a conscience. Your destination for summertime silhouettes flush with the local flavours of inspiring people, places and processes. It’s over a decade since Cassandro brought ethical practices to our summer staples, with the brand’s signature batik prints and fabrics sourced and handcrafted considerately using local methods. Supporting skilled artisans and their improved livelihoods is central to the brand’s DNA, with collections designed by founder Cloe to showcase the combined efforts of a global collective of creatives. Wearing Cassandro is a commitment to the genuine spirit of travel and the destinations you’ll travel to. Globetrot responsibly. Pack Cassandro.

With the incredible response to our initial collections we realised we had created an opportunity to support artisans, many of whom work from home, to support themselves and their families with improved livelihoods through an increased demand for their creativity and skills. There was no turning back. By buying our product you support the artisans we work with to earn a decent living and a better livelihood, whilst being able to be their own boss and work flexible hours, often times from their own homes.

Home-working is common practise for many skilled artisans and tailors within garment supply chains. It can preserve traditional artisan techniques and support more flexible ways for individuals to earn a living; especially for women who would otherwise not be able to earn their own income whilst fulfilling their other responsibilities and providing for their families.

Sustainable Solutions

With an increasing understanding of the positive impact our collaborations could bring we are more determined than ever to provide beautifully made products to you. We are proud of the work that we have done but we have big aspirations for the work that we will do.

We want to support more and more skilled artisans by building the demand for the artisan economy. But we also know we can’t stop there, which is why we are embarking on a journey of continuous learning and improvement. We are committed to acting diligently and looking at the way we work to find areas in which we can improve. We will look for tangible ways to address some of the industry’s most pressing challenges such as waste and wages.

We don’t want to thrive if those who create our products don’t too. That’s why we are working to increase demand and in turn the incomes of those who work with us.

We hate to see any resource go to waste and want to protect this planet we all call home, for everyone on it.

We are committed to minimising our production waste and looking at ways to use less finite resources such as energy and water.

Our goals are simple but we believe by keeping them simple we can stay focused in our efforts to achieve them.
