We already know that shoes can be made from pineapple leaf fibers (piñatex), recycled plastic PET bottles and natural cork. Meanwhile a lot of vegan shoes (including those available in our store) are made from microfiber. What exactly is microfiber?
We are actually quite familiar with cork. We know this fabric from wine bottles, cup pads , boards or boxes. Even shoes’ wedges and bags are made from cork. Meanwhile, cork is used for footwear’s outer part production as well!
We are still impressed with piñatex! This original material has properties almost identical to the leather but is devoid of toxic substances used for its tanning - which is its unquestionable advantage (one of many!).
