SUSTAINABILITY

We take responsibility.

It is not easy to do things right. But it's worth it. And while we are not yet a 100% impact-free brand, we try our best to improve and innovate.

We have spent years finding the best factories to work with, ones who have the same sustainable vision as us - and commit to it by continuously reducing their environmental impact.

Here are some of the sustainable production processes we are proud to have adopted.

99% BIODEGRADABLE

We created a special collection using biodegradable leather, with great consideration for nature. Each component of these models is created to have as little environmental impact as possible.

The leather used is 80% biodegradable in 6 months, and 99% in 12 months. This innovation helps us reduce our footprint as a company.

53% LESS WATER

We created a collection with consideration for water as a natural resource. The leather of the shoes is treated with the most sustainable tanning method available - vegetable tanning, and is metal free.

The leather consumed 52% less water than other leather treated with this method. The box is comes in is a combination of recycled paper and repurposed almond peels - the by-product of the almond industry of South Italy!

100% TRACEABLE

We created a collection with focus on animal welfare and traceability, by partnering with SPOOR. The leather they provided us with for these shoes, is 100% traceable - we can track the exact animal and farm of origin.

This enabled us to be one of the very first shoe brands in the world to offer a product with fully traceable materials - leather and sole. It also ensured we source only from farms which follow the highest standards for animal welfare in the world.

CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIED®

We are incredibly proud to present the world’s first Cradle to Cradle Certified® high heels. To receive the certification, our shoes have been assessed for environmental and social performance across five critical sustainability categories.

Getting full control of every step of our production, testing all materials and chemicals, has been quite a task. But after several years of hard work, we now have 100% transparency in our value chain. This first collection is a huge step for us, and the beginning of something truly amazing.

ANIMAL WELFARE

It is no secret that our shoes are made of leather. And working with this material, we have the responsibility to know its origin, and the welfare of the animals.

For one, we only use hides which are a byproduct of the meat industry. Our suppliers follow global animal welfare standards, which provide a strict framework for how the animals must be treated. You are welcome to read our animal welfare policy, where we dive deep into the details.

IMPACT REPORT 2020

We as a company have a responsibility to do more when it comes to measuring, reducing and communicating the impact of our products. Therefore, as our first step of this journey, we have developed this Shoe Impact report.

It took us 14 months to calculate the environmental impact of 6 of our most popular models, in terms of water consumption, energy consumption and carbon emissions. We then compared it to industry standards, and will use the data to improve our processes in the future.
