Organic Fabrics and Responsible Manufacturing
We only work with certified organic fabrics in our collection.
The GOTS certificate guarantees that we comply with social, environmental, health and safety standards. Here's a list of what is certified under GOTS:
• environmentally friendly production and processing processes
• respect and improvement of working conditions
• promotion of the use of fibers from organic agriculture
• prohibition of hazardous inputs such as toxic heavy metals, aromatic solvents etc.
The soles of our sneakers are made with all-natural rubber. Rubber comes from the rubber tree and is harvested year after year, similarly to how maple syrup is harvested. The sap is collected by a method called tapping and with it rubber pellets are made. This material is not only natural but durable and animal friendly.
The rubber tree will grow to heights of 100 to 130 feet, and can live up to 100 years. The process of tapping does not harm the trees. In fact, a single tree can be tapped for 30-40 years.
Jute is one of the most ancient shoemaking materials. We use it in our authentic Spanish espadrilles. Not only is it natural, but it’s a great alternative to plastics and harmful chemicals, it is also a material that cleanses the air. Studies have shown that 1 hectare of jute cultivation can absorb up to 15 tonnes of carbon dioxide and release 11 tons of oxygen during throughout the jute growing process (about 100 days).
Not only is cork a renewable resource that originates from cork forests. Cork forests rank among the top biodiversity hotspots in the Mediterranean and Europe. We’ve worked out a superb compressed midsole that is ergonomic, animal friendly and easy to wear.
Our rubber soles are vulcanized giving our sneakers a better grip on surfaces which makes them superior for playing sports like walking, tennis, or sailing. Vulcanization is the process of using heat to bond the rubber sole to the cotton canvas upper. No glues are used, just heat that melts the rubber into the cotton canvas upper, creating a lasting bond.
Our vegan materials are breathable, machine washable, and cruelty free, with no animal products or testing. Our sneakers are PETA-approved vegan.
