INNOVATIVE AND SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

We use new and natural materials to make quality shoes. Primarily, our materials are plant-based, using mostly cork, waterproof organic cotton, pineapple-fibers and a new type of faux leather that consists of up to 80 percent 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.

When selecting materials, we are choosing a new approach and offer a sustainable alternative. The origins of our materials are especially important to us. If possible we source materials from local manufacturers in the region of our shoemakers, ensuring ethical labour conditions are adhered to. Although, for the most part 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.

Our shoes are always soft and flexible. We use light-weight materials and avoid unnecessarily hard and heavy strengthening in between the layers – to increase comfort and protect natural resources.

ABOUT innovative Materialien INFOGRAFIK

MADE BY SHOEMAKERS

SORBAS are modern shoes that are manufactured by traditional shoemakers in small and local shops. This improves the quality of our shoes, but also ensures high labor standards. By only choosing small and trustworthy shoemakers for the manufacturing, we support and promote local communities. We make sure that we know exactly where our shoes come from and under which conditions they have been made. We cultivate friendly relationships with our shoemakers and their staff.

We support the expertise of people who have been working in the shoemaking industry for generations; maintaining and expanding the traditional shoemakers business in these communities. SORBAS integrates small and traditional shoemakers into the modern supply chain, securing the future of family businesses and their staff, especially in less privileged countries, We want to set an example for good working conditions and show that small shoemakers can be successful and enjoy a bright future.

In order to establish fair working conditions, we collaborate with international partners. Our first project in Serbia was made possible with the support of the development agency USAID. Here we work with a traditional shoemakers family to improve labor conditions, paying wages above minimum- and living wage. Our production has become the main pillar of the family business and is securing the shoemakers’ future.
