BOI DE SANTA FÉ
It all started in early 2019 when we joined the “Boi de Santa Fé”, a folkloric group from Maranhão, Brasil. With this partnership and the sales of the Folk Party styles, we support the “Associação Cultural do Bumba–meu–boi e Tambor de Crioula Unidos de Santa Fé”, contributing to the perpetuation of one of the most symbolic cultural expressions in Brasil. FARM Rio believes in popular culture as an agent for the transformation of people, in Brasil and all around the globe. Through this partnership, we are investing in the Plan for Transferring Knowledge and Maintaining the Cultural Asset "'Boi de Santa Fé"', which offers embroidery, music, and dance workshops for about 150 people from the local community. The campaign for the collection included models, who are part of the Unidos de Santa Fé group, and part of the technical team made up of professionals from the region.Discover more
Smiley®, joy, and good vibes. We started a partnership with Smiley in 2021, sharing our good vibes and love for the sun. We placed our prints on pants, overalls, skirts, dresses, t-shirts, sweatshirts, windbreakers, jumpsuits, hats, and bags. In return, we donated USD 17,045.4 (Brasil + Global) to Smile Train, a leading organization for the treatment of cleft lip and palate. The donation was used to pay for 112 reconstructive surgeries.Discover more

In 2021, FARM Rio began a partnership that promises to be long and beautiful. We fully support the proposal for creating the UniPreta Lab, together with the Oyá Institute from Salvador – Bahia, in the Northeast region of Brasil. The Lab UniPreta Learning and Development Project seeks to strengthen the collective organization processes of the Pirajá community in Salvador based on the diversity of artistic languages, art education, and solidarity economy. In 2022, FARM Rio invested USD 32,345.8 in the Lab.
