we

We are a Cooperative Association, specialized in employing people who have received jail sentences. Our work takes place inside the correctional centers in Venice and the surrounding area. Day after day we invest in people, their potential and their desire to redeem themselves. Because we believe that each of us deserves a second chance.

Each product we make is special because it tells the story of the hands that worked it, made of crooked pasts, a present state of commitment and the expectation of a brighter future. Our products speak of commitment, ethic and care for the environment.

Our activities include: cultivating an organic vegetable garden, printing ethical and fair trade silk-screen t-shirts, producing handbags, bags and accessories in recycled materials and the production of an organic and conventional line of cosmetics.
On all of our products you will find the label "Rio Terà dei Pensieri" and "malefatte".
