Giulia Letzi is a mother-daughter team dedicated to sustainability and slow fashion. They started out making small batch scarves in their hometown in Italy. Now based in Arlington, Virginia, Giulia Letzi has launched the META Jewelry collection that features affordable, ethically made jewelry. Their colorful, everyday upcycled jewelry is handcrafted using plastic bottles recovered from local coffee shops, then paired with recycled sterling silver and 14K gold filled hardware. They use every part of the bottle for various components in their jewelry. Through the META Jewelry collection, Giulia Letzi directly acts on the billion tons of plastic that never reach a recycled state, in turn creating sustainable everyday jewelry that fits every style.
