We want Puerto Rico to become a hub for high end ready to wear manufacturing, the circular way. In order for that dream to become a reality, we tackle these fronts:
Education and Training
his is the first step for pret-a-porter manufacturing in Puerto Rico; creating the appropriate ecosystem for designers in the Island to thrive and for stateside brands to come produce here. Retazo is a circular training program, we teach factories new ways of producing so they can diversify their offering by capitalizing on what they already know and combining it with our training. Using design and systems thinking tools, workers, managers and designers learn the best way to collaborate. Always thinking of the triple bottom line, People, Profit, Planet.
Product Development & Production Management
We offer brands services to manufacture their collections in Puerto Rico. We manage the production and the product development. We also help navigate the export systems in the Island. We are with our clients every step of the way. Certifying processes the Retazo way.
We advocate and promote fashion designers in Puerto Rico to have successful long careers. They need to grow their businesses outside of Puerto Rico as well. We offer collective trade show representation for international events and a virtual showroom and assistance navigating the wholesale world.
