Open front coat made from an antique bed cover originating from the Portuguese town of Fátima. Decorative faux slash pockets on the front. White 'FATIMA MUNDO' ('Fatima World') text on the back references the sweet imagery of a small town, as depicted by the luminous white embroidery: a towering church, stars, a praying saint, birds, a blooming tree, conversing figures, and lambs.
Based in sunny Portugal but firstly imagined in India, BÉHEN believes in fashion being wasteless in one-off clothes made of antique textiles. A brand born to be a storyteller, it tells the tales of women singing in Hindi and dancing under Rajasthan’s sun. Women who step on the Portuguese sidewalk with ‘saudade’ on their chest. Women who saw the sunrise in Syria but don’t close their eyes to darkness. Women who want to change the world. Clothes made ethically by women communities around the world and that support Syrian boys and girls' education. A project that tells the story of the connection of women through textiles. Sisters, daughters and protectors of the planet. Hands that learn how to do magic.
