WEEKLY FEATURED TOTEMS
TOTEM TABOO ETHOS
Operating outside traditional seasons, bespoke and very small limited edition capsule collections are released punctually focusing on locally and ethically handcrafted one-of-a-kind pieces that transcend fast fashion ethos and trends. As a reflection of us, all Totems are different. All unique.
All Totems are locally handmade in London. Materials are generally sourced both online and in London by original suppliers. As socially engaged artwork the main purpose of Totem Taboo is to create powerful campaigns and it is not structured by any means to make of it a profitable business. 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 as well as all the rest of ‘branding’ work aside, is sourced, written, designed, made, styled, produced, marketed 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 & creativity,
her purpose using design and performance
to fashion social values is what
makes her work really special.
