Manufacturing information:

Recycled PET -- While PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is still plastic it is incredibly recyclable. We hope to see the production of plastic come to an end but in the meantime we can help to reduce the consumption of natural resources by making use of recycled materials; reduce, reuse, recycle. That's why we decided to turn it into beautiful products for you! First synthesised in the 1940s PET was popularised for its strong, lightweight nature, which likewise is true of RPET (Recycled PET). When broken down, your old bottles and food containers can be turned into clothing, accessories – and of course beautiful shoes! – making it as easy on your conscience as on your skin.

Care instructions:

For PET fabric products, we recommend clean using a soaked cloth with soapy water. For more difficult to remove stains, rub in a soft cleaning brush for shoes soaked with soapy water in a circular motion. Remove the soap with a damp cloth. Let your item air dry before wearing.

Special notes:

RE-MOVE Project -- It is estimated that at least 8 million tons of plastic will end up in our oceans every year - the equivalent to a garbage truck full of plastic per minute. To address this issue, we launched RE-MOVE, a project that offers sustainable footwear made with recycled plastic from the ocean and other recycled materials. // Billions of tons of plastic in the seas affecting and contaminating ecosystem, animals lives and humans. Humanity has created 8.3 billions tons of plastic. Today 4.6 billion tons of plastic is in landfills or the environment. It is estimated that 75% of the waste is in the depths of the seas and only 25% in on the surface. // We have used the ocean as a trash can, as if it could somehow recycle our synthetic leftovers. It is such a huge and serious problem that lead fisherman community, NGO’S and informal groups to take action. // We must stop producing plastic and thats why we develop this project. RE-MOVE is a project as a way of solution for the remaining problem. Now we have products that are made of fabric produced from collected ocean’s plastic!This amazing project is just one way. We can do better! Join us to free the ocean.
