Eden Diodati fuses timeless design, and the innovative use of natural materials with centuries old craftsmanship. Marrying Pret-A-Porter with progressive philanthropy, the brand manufactures ethically in social cooperatives in Italy and now Rwanda providing sustainable employment to formerly marginalized women.
Wearing an Eden Diodati piece is more than an aesthetic statement. It is a commitment to a fashion ethos embedded in a four-tiered philosophy represented by Eden Diodati’s Talisman. The Talisman draws together four brand values that together reflect the optimism of the human condition: art collaboration, beauty through compassion, ethical manufacturing and wearable philanthropy.
Eden Diodati works with an extraordinary cooperative of women who survived the genocide in Rwanda. Employing centuries old artisanal heritage and craftsmanship, their skill, courage, fortitude and faith inspires Eden Diodati’s creative direction, whilst challenging pre-conceptions of ‘Made in Africa’. Shifting paradigms in luxury fashion.
The brand’s ready to wear collections are crafted in an Italian social cooperative that builds skills, employment opportunities and self-esteem for those who would otherwise be excluded from society. This not-for-profit organization seeks to rehabilitate recovering addicts, people living with mental illness, disabled people and victims of abuse. It is managed by a team who have chosen to dedicate their lives to social development. Giving enhanced meaning to ‘Made in Italy,’ those who had been pushed to the fringes of society have been given the support to utilize their skills and the chance to rebuild their lives through dignified enterprise.
The Fall 2014 collection is inspired by the transition from darkness to light, from the void to new beginnings. Featuring printed silks, GOTS certified organic silk in jewel shades, alongside intricate jewelry and accessories; Eden Diodati, bringing deeper meaning to luxury.
