A New State Of Mind
Our journey began with a problem worth solving: addressing the wasteful state of the modern fashion industry.
From the carbon emissions, water pollution, and waste production, to the treatment of animals and exploitation of the labor force.
Create beautiful shoes with a story — and process — worth sharing.
We Are Committed To:
Working with local artisans who are paid fair wages, using forward-thinking and ecologically responsible methods.
Innovative, sustainable, cruelty-free materials and the ethical companies and partners that create them.
Self-education, design innovation, and attention to the details.
Not claiming to be perfect – but infinitely striving to better the health of our planet, our fellow inhabitants, and our future generations.
The belief that while business is business, each one of us — from the items we consume and covet to the brands that we hold accountable for their values and actions — impacts the world in which we live.
We’re honored to play a positive part in your world — and your wardrobe.
WASTE NOT. WANT THESE.
Shoes are only as pretty as the stories (and sources) behind them. Here are ours.
Our uppers incorporate this new solvent and chemical-free material.
50% of our linings are derived from this inedible (but totally renewable) plant byproduct.
We've replaced 20% of the petrolatum usually found in insoles with a bio-oil substitute.
Our heels are sourced from responsibly harvested and FSC-certified timber.
