Materials & Components
We challenge and push design and product development boundaries to make luxurious products in a way that is fit for the world we live in today and tomorrow, both beautiful and sustainable. No compromises.
Nature-L ® Leather
This Nature-L ® leather been designed to degrade by 75% in the first 90 days of composting, compared to standard leather which degrades by only 7.8% in the same conditions. This leather uses less water than the traditional tanning process and reduces waste as cut-offs are composted. It also reduces the amount of dye needed because of the improved colour intake. 32% of leather uppers and 87% of linings are made of Nature-L ® leather.
Chrome-free leather has been tanned without the use of heavy metals.This reduces impurities in waste waters created during the tanning process. The leather is produced in a closed cycle so water can be recycled, and overall water-consumption is reduced. 16% of leather uppers are made of chrome-free leather.
PYRATEX® COSMETIC VI
PYRATEX® cosmetic VI is a new fabric made of crushed, ground seaweed and eucalyptus wood cellulose. It is a 100% organic fiber, free of toxins, completely biodegradable, carbon neutral, and OEKO-Tex® 100 certified, with amino acids, vitamins and minerals that are beneficial for the skin.
For this capsule collection we used a heel embedded with glass Swarovski crystal pearls.
- Natural Elastic
- Stiffeners & Toe Caps
Our veg-tanned leather soles represent 68% of all Autumn Winter 21 soles and are tanned only using natural tanning ingredients. They are plastic-free and finished using a brushing technique.
71% of the plastic TPU sole is now plant-based. Fossil fuels have been replaced with castor bean oil and sugar cane, reducing overall carbon emissions. Plant-based soles represent 18% of our Autumn Winter 21 soles. Only 13% of all soles are not made using conscious materials. These include rubber soles that are not yet plant-based and some high-gloss finished leather soles.
