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!).
We decided to start a series of posts about the manufacturers we work with. Most of them have a fascinating story behind creating the brand . Moreover it’s worth to tell about the philosophy which is still developing and improving.
Some time ago we visited autumn edition of the Days of Shoes Polshoes. In Warsaw, Kraków and Poznan polish shoe manufacturers were presenting their collections and trying to encourage all people associated with the shoe industry to cooperate. We couldn’t miss it!
