TOTEM TABOO ETHOS
All collections are very small limited edition capsulle productions of handcrafted one-of-a-kind pieces. As single artist team creations, Totem Taboo does not really work on wholesale prices and very big distributions. But it does work on bespoke creations upon request. As a reflection of us, all Totems are different. All unique.
All pieces are locally handmade in London. Materials are generally sourced online and in London. Totem Taboo refuses imitations coming from so many forms of physical, mental and spiritual slavery and exploitation and the ‘producing in the south to sell in the north’ business approach. As artwork its ethic compromise comes before profit. Totem Taboo has a political mind, a creative heart and a social soul.
Totem Taboo is a conceptual artistic labour of handmade and intellectual work in all the process phases. All totems, crafted by hand with a strong love & purpose engine as well as all the rest of branding work aside, is designed, made, styled, produced and directed by a team of two hands, the ones of the anthropologist and artist Cristina Morales.
TOTEM TABOO EXPERIENCE
Totem Taboo is the only brand I know working with the world as a whole.
Both visual and conceptually strong, it shapes a visionary state of mind.
I enjoy its philosophy, its link to revolutionary music and wearing it because it expresses who I am.
I quickly fell in love with Totem Taboo symbolism.
Beside her great taste and creativity, her purpose using fashion to work
individual and collectively on identity it is what makes her work really special.
