Welcome to NAE’s first Blogpost!
This blog will be dedicated not only to tell you all the details about our fabulous and kind shoes, but also to start an open dialog about the topics we are most passionate about.
We will cover everything, from the problematic fast fashion industry to delicious vegan recipes! It will be heavy, but always charming. We're not perfect by any means. We're striving for a better world, to be the best version of ourselves, to win with kindness.
For a real change to happen, we all need to stand together, because even though your little step doesn’t feel like much, millions of little steps will definitely make a difference. We would love to build a community, so that we can all learn and teach together, with respect, patience and great humor! We believe fashion is a great way for you to get creative and express yourself while brightening up the streets!
We want to keep you stylish while contributing for the betterment of our world. It’s true that the insane amount of products we are consuming right now is a big part of our world’s problems. However, the consequences of that are incredibly detrimental because of the way our products are manufactured.
Therefore, we believe in not only reducing, but also changing how the production chain works. If people are mindful about the way they consume, we will need less and acquire better quality products, that don’t come from neither human or animal exploitation, and don’t harm the environment we depend on.
Fast fashion brands release new clothes, shoes and accessories every week for a very low price, and that, can only be obtained through human and animal exploitation, and the detriment of our resources. That’s why at NAE we stand for slow fashion, going back to two collections every season, Summer and Winter, produced in our homeland, Portugal. We love using organic cotton, pineapple leaf, recycled airbags and many other materials that are responsibly harvested, and exploit nothing and no-one. We know we still have some barriers to break, but we are fighting to make the most sustainable shoes you have ever encountered.
With no further ado here is some of our Spring/Summer collection for 2019!
