Dod Alfaiataria Honors Brazilian Music History for Tencel Collection

Brazilian fashion brand Dod Alfaiataria is paying homage to samba music’s heritage while serving sustainability demands in its second capsule collection collaboration with TENCEL™ and local mill Canatiba Textil.

Dubbed “Quintal 540,” the collection references Rio de Janeiro-based group Oito Batutas’ Parisian tour in 1922, which included six months of performing at the nightclub Schéhérazade. With Quintal 540, Dod Alfaiataria is bringing the connection between music and fashion to the forefront and celebrating an often-overlooked era in popular Brazilian music.
