Sustainability

Sustainability Experts

We developed our first Sustainable shoe in 2009 for a Finnish brand, using only recycled materials.

With such an early start, we have the advantage of working with sustainable materials for a long time and therefore we are at the cutting edge of sustainable technology and innovation.

Having us as your footwear productive partners means:
  • Easy Source of sustainable materials (Outsole; Upper & Lining, Insole, Reinforcements, Laces, Eyelets).
  • More than 10 years of experience in handling these materials at your service.
  • Certified factories which will handle the job.
  • Portugal has one of the best shares of energy from renewable sources in E.U., 10% higher than its main competitors (Spain and Italy). This means you are not only producing a sustainable product, you are also producing with a very low carbon footprint.
A brief introduction to sustainable shoes
  • Organic is the category that has the least impact on our planet.
  • Mixing categories to achieve a % rate of sustainability on product is the most common approach to sustainability.
  • Replacing leather with non-leather components is a much easier solution. Therefore, a Vegan approach is the easiest to follow.
