Organic Cotton


Did you know that conventional cotton cultivation is the culprit in the use of one quarter of the insecticides all over the world? And if we add the production process of fiber they account together for 10% of our planets total pollution? And did you know that conventional cotton cultivation is one of the main water consumers?
The ethical alternative is the use of organic cotton. No chemicals or synthetics are used in the cultivation and production process and the water used for growing the plant is only rain water. Thus, this fabric becomes completely natural, sustainable and biodegradable.
The cotton which we work with has its origins in Brazil, it is coloring agent and toxic free, it is hypoallergenic and ideal for people with skin problems and who suffer from multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS). The health of the 150 farmers that work at the company is assured by labor certifications and by the project OCCGuarantee. This project supports workers and entire families with the aim of generating local wealth, without intermediaries and without exploitation. The farmers own their land and see their autonomy and stability assured. Find all the models made with this fiber here.

Recycled Airbag


Did you know recycled airbag is used to make shoes? All the products were produced with the intention of giving a new life to a material that is no longer useful, reusing the nylon present in the airbags and give them a new purpose. We are the first brand in the world to design a shoe through the recycling of airbags. Find our airbag models here.

Pineapple leaf fibers


Pineapple leaf fibers are natural and a very interesting material to work with because it is not only water resistant but also very warm. If you add an eco-cream, then you will get a very resistant model to wear all winter! This fabric is produced by an English company that works with local farmers in Philippines. The pineapple production is not specifically to make shoes, so we only use the pineapple leaves from pineapple that is consumed. The production is made by these local farmers in Philippines where the human rights and the labor laws are respected. We contribute for waste recycling and we help these communities with a sale price percentage for each meter we buy. Pineapple leaves are waterproof, breathable and anti-allergic.

PET


The oldest material used by us and that never disappoints. In general, they are made of nylon, cotton and polyester. We only work with ecological microfibers with OEKO-TEX certified that guarantees that don't exist any waste of water or energy in its production. Basically, they are lighter and more ecological with minimal waste. It's the most versatile material to work because it's water resistant and fresh. Microfibers are as tough as leather and less prejudicial to the environment. Find all the models here.
