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 can be composted. It also reduces the amount of dye needed because of the improved colour intake. 100% of suede leather uppers and 100% of neutral and black 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. 18% of leather uppers are made of chrome-free leather.
Leather Working Group
We are proud to be working with the Leather Working Group, an organisation that focuses on creating positive environmental impact within the industry and a resource for brands, manufacturers, suppliers, NGOs and final users. The LWG maintains a protocol that enforces the environmental compliance and performance of leather manufacturers and encourages sustainable and appropriate environmental business practices in the leather industry, with a goal of reducing waste and water usage, air, water and soil pollution, and emissions. 73% of our leather uppers come from LWG audited tanneries inclouding all the Nature-L ® leathers.
- Stiffeners & Toe Caps
The insoles are made from 100% FSC®️ certified cellulose fibres, so they are fully degradable in the first 3-6 months of composting. The insoles are designed to be particularly strong and resistant, therefore our high-heeled shoes no longer need a metal support shank. 100% of our collection uses these innovative insoles.
