Geena B. Valentine and Rufus are an internationally active songwriters and artist couple from Italy. With their Americana music they have been known far beyond their national borders for years. Their songs are regularly played on radios in Europe, Australia and the USA. Their songs, which they basically write, record, produce and promote themselves, mainly deal with topics about social ills, deceleration, sustainability and non-buyable values.
Their involvement in these areas goes far beyond music. For example, the two run the fashion label theBadSeedsCompany, which they founded in 2012. This is their answer to the omnipresent fast fashion. In their workshop, streetwear is made from fabrics that come from Europe and about whose origin is carefully respected. Mainly hemp, nettle and linen are used. The garments are produced locally with hand-operated machines or directly by hand
In addition, the two are active in the field of research. For years they have been looking for ways and means to produce plastics and other materials from hemp and are also active themselves in the cultivation of several acres of hemp. Through this work, they have been able to meet many pioneers in various fields over the past few years. Geena and Rufus are happy to introduce you to these dazzling and often too little appreciated personalities here soon.
