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.
