Responsibly sourced, natural materials are the most sustainable way to create products that are easy on our planet.
Choose Your Treasures With The Planet In Mind
The RWS certificate ensures the wool is from an ethical source where the sheep have been reared in line with the five freedoms of animal welfare. Encompassing the physical and mental wellbeing of the animals as well as holistic land management practices. Peruvian Alpaca is one of the most ethical fibres sourced from free roaming Alpacas in their natural habitat. The Alpaca are traditionally sheared in the summertime using cruelty free practices.
The Wool is naturally renewable. Sheep play a role in the carbon cycle, consuming organic carbon stored in plants and converting it into wool making this fibre low impact. Further to this, garments made from wool return carbon and nutrients to the soil when they break down in a natural environment. Wool has a positive life cycle.

Did you know?
Most wedge heels have to have a foam base... Because we avoid plastic at all costs in our production, we had to work with our manufacturers to develop a wood base that would be gentler on the planet. This way, when the shoes are at the end of their life they can actually return to the earth in far less time than traditional wedges. Anything with plastic will take hundreds of years to disappear from the planet.
