My passion as a guitar maker comes from a life-long obsession with making things. From a young age I have always tried to manipulate objects and materials in order to create something entirely different. I find that working with wood is a way for me to connect with nature. The simple act of shaping wood to make something functional or beautiful brings me endless satisfaction. I have been fortunate enough to sell my first few guitars to some very talented, wonderful musicians and seeing them perform their music on my instruments was an invigorating experience.

As a company founded and still largely owned by French farmers, we have a profound respect for the environments in which we operate. We appreciate the need to preserve scarce resources and are committed to reducing the impact of our operations. We are also working closely with conservation groups to protect and preserve marine creatures. One of the most important steps we are taking is the development of ships powered by LNG (liquefied natural gas). When burnt this creates far lower levels of airborne pollutants and CO2. Honfleur will be the first LNG ferry to operate on the Channel and we are not waiting for infrastructure in ports to help. Honfleur’s fuel delivery and storage solution is a world first.
Casa das Garçasis a conservation-orientated lodge, born from a joint initiative of Quirimbas National Park and the Italian Organization Istituto Oikos and funded by the Italian Cooperation.

Casa das Garças is not only a guesthouse but also a hub for environmental education and research: a place for travellers and researchers who wish to enjoy and protect biodiversity. We support collaboration between local and international universities, who use the lodge as a base to carry out important work in the archipelago. Through eco-tourism and cultural exchange we aim to strive for a sincere, mutually beneficial engagement with the local community, working hand in hand with the people who call Ibo home.

The concept of the brand came after the birth of my son, Alfredo (the company is named after him) when I was reflecting upon the world we would leave to the next generation and my frustration with the excessive use of the world’s natural resources.

By integrating breakthrough technology we create clothing and accessories made entirely from recycled materials…without actually looking like it. ECOALF represents the fabrics for the future generations.Vision: stop using natural resources in a careless way. Mission: create the first generation of recycled products with the same quality and design as the best non-recycled
