The accessory line made by the young people of the social cooperative In-Presa is available, an example of sustainability and inclusion

Inclusion and sustainability are the protagonists of the projects which Caffè Milani has developed over its 85 years of activity. Among these are cooperation with the social cooperative In-Presa, an institution in Carate Brianza (MB) dealing with vocational training, job placement, school support and consolidation for young people of compulsory education age. With it, the Roasting Company of Lipomo (CO) has developed a line of eco-fashion accessories handmade from waste materials from the coffee industry: bags, clutches and backpacks created by the youth of the cooperative who design a real line of objects starting from the reuse of products such as jute and rolls, where each object is unique and contains the craftsmanship of those who work in the two laboratories involved: the tailoring and creativity laboratory .

Our eco-fashion accessories carry many messages – emphasize Elisabetta Milani, Marketing and Communications Manager -. Certainly sustainability, but also inclusion, solidarity, training as well as the taste and imagination of the Italian style that Caffè Milani fully recognizes and that it is the bearer of in the many international markets where it is present ».

Keywords of # CaffèMilani85 is truly 360° sustainability: environmental, social and economic. An idea that also transcends all-Italian craftsmanship, thus uniting two worlds that seem distant but are united by manual skills and passion.

The first edition of the artifacts produced by the youth of the social cooperative In-Presa is already available on the website and from October also in the Caffè & Caffè brand stores in the cities of Como, Lecco, Monza and Padua. This project is part of the wider program for the 85th anniversary of Caffè Milani, which will culminate in an event by reason of International Coffee Day on 1 October followed on October 2 by a day with open doors where all the public, subject to reservation, will be able to visit the company, the exhibition and the collection of antique coffee machines that contain the story of our company told through coffee during a 300-year journey.
