BOTÓ DE COTÓ, it’s 100% local
Why do we work exclusively with local suppliers?
During those autumn evenings when we decided to start this adventure called BOTÓ DE COTÓ. We knew we wanted our brand to be the reflection of ourselves, it had to represent our values and be our hallmark.
We always understood that we are Mediterranean. Our lifestyle, our diet, our personality … everything that surrounds us is Mediterranean! That’s why our first motto: Mediterranean Spirit, is following us today. We continue with this slogan with fear of abandoning/leaving him, we do not know if by superstition or because we don´t like to get rid of the things we love.
We were born in a small town south of Valencia. Land of orange trees and rice, a few kilometers from the sea and a few minutes from the mountain. We live in touch with the land, our parents were and still are farmers. From a fertile but abandoned land, mistreated and rarely used.
For that reason from the beginning, we knew we were going to work with local suppliers and carry out the production completely in our town. We like to work with people that we are very close to. People with whom we can have a direct contact and agreements. And at the same time, it allowed us to control the whole process of productions to obtain the best product.
We live in complex times, where professionals from the textile sector have had to leave their jobs because of that damn crisis, determined not to abandon us and leaving a region sunk in pessimism. But we are a land of cheerful, selfless and kind people. That’s why it was not difficult for us to find professionals willing to reinvent themselves after having lost their jobs after closing of the furniture factories. Some of them decided to join us to undertake this journey together. To grow together. To create together.
To all of them, who work hours and hours with us: Thank you very much!
