The Materials We Use
We use only the best non-leather materials. These materials are expensive because they arise from complex technologies, and achieve the highest quality standards. The main ones and their applications are:
EcoLorica microfibre (state of the art strong & breathable synthetic leather): footwear uppers, some belts and all other accessories.
Clarino full grain microfibre (an excellent synthetic leather; non-breathable ): some belts
Rubber, thermoplastic rubber, thermoplastic urethane: for outsoles
Texon cellulose board, or non-woven board: for most shoeboard
Poron rebound urethane for insole cushioning.
We encourage other manufacturers and retailers of vegan and vegetarian footwear to declare the ingredients of their products. Then consumers will be in a position to evaluate and compare the relative qualities of each product.
We also encourage other manufacturers and retailers to make a genuine and tangible commitment to environmental sustainability.
