Our goal is to produce environmentally friendly and fair trade shoes along with accessories that last through the years and age with time. Due to its combination of flexibility and durability over time, we mostly use the highest quality cork fabric taking into account the most valued part of the cork properties.
We only use cork fabric as our main material with demanding criteria of applicability in footwear, to guarantee sturdiness, flexibility and comfort.
All other materials such as soles, linings, etc…are evolving towards using raw materials that are increasingly environmentally friendly and that promote fair trade. Some examples are the natural rubber soles used, or natural rubber soles with cork particles or cereals particles, or soles made from reused tires, or post-consumer recycled PET fabrics.
We source locally and responsibly in Portugal and follow a strict ethical code. We visit our factories often (at least once a month) to overhaul working conditions and we also make sure our shoe artisans are paid fairly for their exquisite work. The raw materials we use follow the same premises as stated above.
The right way to clean our cork shoes and accessories is with (natural) soap and water. Simply added some natural soap (or non-aggressive soap) to a damp sponge to clean the dirt in the outside, accumulated over the years, depending on the frequency of use. Finally, use a dry towel to remove the cleaning excess and let it dry at room temperature. Advice: do not expose the item directly to the sun to dry.
