We use new and natural materials to make quality shoes. When selecting materials, we are choosing a new approach and offer a sustainable alternative. The origin of our materials is especially important to us. Sometimes we can buy materials from local manufacturers close to the traditional shoemakers shops where our shoes are made and where we can learn about the working conditions in these traditional shops. For the most part, however, we work with Western European suppliers that make the uppers and outsole materials in Switzerland, France and Italy. We do so, in order to ensure that there is no exploitation of labor involved and that the materials are manufactured according to high environmental and labor standards. The strict selection of our suppliers also shows in the quality of our shoes.
For the most part, our materials are plant-based. We mostly use cork or waterproof organic cotton. and work with a new type of faux leather that is based up to 80 percent on natural and plant-based materials. Approximately 75 percent of our products are entirely vegan. Our leather is manufactured in Europe, free of chromium-IV and partly vegetable-tanned.
Our shoes are always soft and flexible. We use light materials and avoid unnecessary hard and heavy strengthening in between the layers – to increase comfort and protect natural resources.
