We love Parisian brand Veja’s elevated take on the traditional tennis shoe.
Made in Brazil from vegetable tanned leather, organic cotton and wild rubber from the Amazon (the last place on earth where rubber trees grow in the wild) which is used to construct the sole. These ESPLAR* sneakers have been named after a Brazilian NGO which brings technical support to the organic cotton farming families that Veja work with in North Brazil. * Escritório de Planejamento e Assessoria Rural (The Rural Planning and Development Association)






Locally Produced: Materials are sourced and produced in Brasil Locally Sourced: Veja work with 320 families who make a living from organic cotton farming in North East Brasil Mindful Manufacturing: Veja work with ASF an organistaion in France that employs people who are being reintroduced into society. Environmentally friendly: Rubber is grown on wild trees in the Amazon. Leather is vegetable tanned reducing the pollution in water surrounding the tannery. Organic cotton is used to reduce the use of chemicals benefiting both the manufacturer and end user.






Made from eco tanned leather created with vegetable extract such as Acacia, unlike modern tanning procedures based on heavy metals this decreases the pollution in water surrounding the tannery plant. The sole is made from wild rubber grown on trees in the Amazon. Veja buy cotton from 320 families who live from organic cotton farming in Northeast of Brazil. Lace up.

We could talk about Veja for days. Launched in 2004 by Sébastien Kopp & François Morillion, VEJA was founded as an adventure and an attempt to try something different. In 10 years, the Veja team proved that it was possible to rethink how sneakers were made. They use organic cotton for the canvas, wild rubber from Amazon to create the soles, work directly with small farmers to source materials and create new & innovative ecological fabrics. However most importantly they produce sneakers with dignity.

Our collection from the brand includes shoes made from the skin of fish eaten by locals in Brazil and a trainer with Liquid Rubber Technology in the sole for extra comfort. The shoes are beautiful and the ethics match.

We featured Veja's production process in Edition 009 of our journal.
