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.
