ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT

As part of our philosophy, taking responsibility for protecting our environment is one of our major goals. That’s why we strive towards becoming more sustainable with the implementation of processes and materials that are non-polluting and organically sourced. We also seek to work with suppliers that share our planet-first philosophy and use certified processes that ensure high quality materials while protecting the environment.

MATERIALS


VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER

Our leather, the most important resource in our huaraches, is vegetable tanned following a traditional, 200-year-old method and extensive 14-step process that takes up to 28 days. The cow hides are dyed using plant and earth-based tanning agents instead of harmful chemicals, and are naturally dried outside over multiple days.

Apart from the tanning process, we try to keep our leather as ethical as possible. The cows come from wide-open farms and to keep transportation short and emissions low, all our leather is sourced locally.

CERTIFIED LEATHER

NATURAL CREPE SOLES

Natural rubber crepe comes from an indigenous South American tradition that involves a handcrafted process of several steps and requires expert knowledge and experience.

Crepe rubber gives our huaraches a natural luxury finish, while also making them incredibly flexible, resistant and comfortable. This incredible material is capable of providing long lasting durability, yet thanks to its all natural composition, is also completely biodegradable.

UPCYCLED AIRPLANE TIRE SOLE

Our boots are equipped with this innovative sole made from old rubber tires that would usually go to landfill. We decided to give these tires a second life. As soles for our boots, the recycled tire material provides extra durability, grip and support with every step. Additionally, because tires are a highly resistant material that can take up to 80 years to decompose, recycling them helps keeps our planet cleaner.

PACKAGING


RENEWABLE & BIODEGRADABLE

Our sustainability efforts don’t stop there. We also try to reduce our environmental footprint by using renewable and biodegradable packaging materials.

RECYCLED PAPER

Our shoeboxes, ring boxes, and padded shipping envelopes are made of recycled paper.

ORGANIC AND CERTIFIED

Our jewelry is packed in an undyed organic cotton bag and comes with an FSC-certified paper backing

OUR CONTRIBUTION TO A CIRCULAR ECONOMY


RECYCLED & UPCYCLED MATERIALS

We use upcycled airplane tires in our boots collection. In our jewelry collection, we use 100% recycled silver and upcycled brass.

REPURPOSING WASTE

Our huaraches are handwoven with long strips of leather. In the cutting process some of the leather straps are cut too short and can't be used for production. At the moment, we send part of these scraps to a fashion university in Italy where the students can use the material for their projects.

However, we aim to eliminate all material waste. That's why we are currently also designing and developing products that can use these leftovers.

CARBON FOOTPRINT


REGIONALLY CLOSE MANUFACTURING

We have consciously chosen to have our production in Mexico only. Most of our partners are based in Michoacan and Jalisco. By sticking to a small geographic region, we limit the carbon emissions from transportation between suppliers.

COMMUTING

We offer flexible working arrangements for our international team in Mexico and Germany so they can work from home whenever they wish. Our employees are also encouraged to travel to the office via public transport or with their bike.

BECOMING CLIMATE NEUTRAL

We are currently in the process of becoming a certified Climate Neutral brand. After analyzing our environmental footprint, we will offset our carbon emissions and develop a 2-year plan to make improvements throughout our whole supply chain.

As part of our commitment we'll continue to work towards implementing better materials and processes to our products and partner with people who are equally as committed to this goal as we are.
