– 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. ---- It is Cork time! We have a cork line since 2009 because we know how great this natural textile can be and how beautiful fits in shoes. We only work with cork produced in protected reserves and we love this material because it is waterproof, smooth elegant, soft and it is never out of fashion. Cork is incredibly durable and great for the environment. It is harvested from cork oak (or quercus suber) trees and is 100% sustainable. Cork farming actually has a negative carbon footprint, meaning that using it in our products has an incredibly positive impact on the planet. It’s waterproof, hypoallergenic and soft to the touch, making it virtually perfect. ------ Vegan Leather Our "vegan leather" is made from a mix of microfibres including mix of cotton, polyester and nylon (which is recycled wherever possible). Choosing vegan leather helps to save billions of animals each year and means that you don’t need to compromise on style. We hope you enjoy your luxurious new vegan leather products. Microfibers are made of: Polyester, Nylon and Cotton We only work with ecological microfibers with OEKO-TEX certified that guarantees that don't exist any waste of water or energy in its production. Basically, they are lighter and more ecological with minimal waste. It's the most versatile material to work, water resistant and fresh.
