WHAT OUR SHOES ARE MADE OF
We transform biological residuals from the production of apple juice into new raw material that gets developed into apple skin for our shoes.
Our grape skins are made in collaboration with Italian wineries, through a process for the valorizations of wine waste: grape marc that is composed by grape skins, stalks and seeds discarded during wine production.LEARN MORE
Our outsoles are made with a chrome-free and metal-free vegetable tanned leather. This natural tanning process uses tannins from tree bark and chestnut extract, resulting in unique and beautiful coloring that is equally lasting, strong, and chemical-free.
The brass we use is collected from 100% industrial residuals of the highest quality brass captured from a metal and hardware factory’s production. This is done in compliance with European Union’s REACH standards and regulations.
Our upcycled plastic is composed of post production recycled materials from cutting and skiving. The material gets regenerated and fully recycled into a new production cycle.
FSC certification ensures that our paper comes from responsibly managed forests that have environmental, social and economic benefits.
Our reusable shoe dust bags are made from 100% recycled organic cotton that has been grown without fertilizers and pesticides that instead promotes practices that encourage biodiversity and soil health.
