Host a party to showcase beautiful upcycled accessories
Introducing Cantabulous Creations parties to Sydney homes; the perfect excuse to gather your friends together and shop for a unique, on-trend and sustainable accessories for yourself or a loved one.
You've probably heard of parties you can host at home, where you showcase a specific brand or product to your friends; food gadgets, Tupperware, underwear, that sort of thing. A Cantabulous Creations party is distinctly different.
These stunning metallic pieces, are made with collected aluminium drinks can tabs, and crafted into unique bags, belts, jewellery pieces and more, by a social enterprize in Brazil.

Unlike anything you have seen before, Cantabulous Creations not only look amazing, but they give back in many ways.
Accessories are eco-friendly, reusing otherwise wasteful materials.
Bags, belts, guitar straps and jewellery pieces are handmade in Brazil by artisan groups in underprivileged communities under fair trade conditions.
The word ESCAMA means 'fish scales' in Portuguese, and when you see what is produced by the initiative, you will see why. Crocheted cab tabs resemble the metallic scales of a fish.
Ingrid, the founder of Cantabulous Creations, started her small business after her sister-in-law gave her an Escama Studio bag as a gift. She loved her bag, and it appeared so did other people who'd stop her in the street to ask about it, that she decided to initiate Cantabulous Creations to support the cause and reach a wider audience for these amazing products.
With Christmas just around the corner, now is a good a time as any to start shopping for your loved ones, so why not consider hosting a Cantabulous Creations home party, stock up on some stand-out accessories, all the while supporting a great cause.
Can't host a party? No problem, you can still buy a beautiful gift online to be delivered to your home or from the occasional market stall Ingrid runs in Sydney.
