Materials used:

Pineapple in your Shoes We use a natural textile from waste plant fibres. Piñatex fibres are the product of pineapple harvest, is made from agricultural waste and is originated in the Philippines. It is produced by local farms and this really helps to create a new industry for pineapple growing countries. No extra land, water, fertilizers or pesticides are required to produce them. Piñatex is one of our natural fabrics. It is made from pineapple leaf fibres. The leaves – which are normally discarded – are taken from pineapple harvests and processed to make this incredibly durable fabric, with any unused fibres then redistributed to the fields as fertiliser. It’s a completely earth-friendly process and the company responsible are working with pineapple farmers to add a whole new income stream to their businesses. For Piñatex products we recommend a polishing cream. Eco Cream that protect, nourish and gives a natural shine to your nae vegan shoes. Made with no animal ingredients and available in brown, black and neutral. It must have the same color of the product and must be specific for the product as well. It will help to keep the original color and look. Method of use: Removing remains of dust and dirt from the shoes. Apply eco-cream with the sponge in circles. After apply, clean the sponge with water. Give shine with a brush or cloth. - Recycled tires, keep them rolling We also used recycled tires to keep them in the streets and off the wastelands. On top of the sole they have a cork cover to make them very comfortable to wear.
