We understand that it is our responsibility to do what we can to become a more sustainable company. We are curious and convicted but by no means perfect. As our world of knowledge continues to evolve alongside our planet, we strive to make every effort to ensure our practices are environmentally sound.
Our Organics Collection is free from harmful heavy metals, such as chrome, formaldehyde and other known dangerous chemicals. We use vegetable tanned leathers prepared in a pre-industrial old world environmentally friendly way using tree bark, leaves, plants and other organic elements.
We use natural organic components in our finished products-vegetable tanned leather, natural latex rubber insoles, biodegradable supports, and primarily water based glues and dyes with limited exceptions, such as poly-cotton threads for durability. In many of our styles we use a natural cork and recycled leather shavings in the midsole which will form to the shape of your feet for a long lasting custom fit. Our Organics Collection will continue to work towards becoming more organic in our processes and materials.
Remember the Three R’s
The Three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle all help to cut down on the amount of waste we throw away. They conserve natural resources, landfill space and energy.
