Swedish sustainable shoes

Hello!

To brighten up your mood in this winter Sunday, check this Swedish sustainable brand for shoes, Blankens!

This brand has been founded in 2014 and it has been embarked since day1 in a journey towards sustainability. Here their underlying principles:

  1. Production chain should be in proximity: in this way they can reduce the negative impact of shipping elements of production and that is why all manufacturing is entirely made in North of Portugal.

2. Materials sustainability and traceability: all the leather is sourced in Italy and Spain, and the brand is in the process of replacing it with more sustainable materials, such as vegetally tanned leathers, eco-leathers, and alternative materials made from recycled plastic.

3. Create products that are supposed to last by combining nice design with good quality.

If you visit the e-shop you can quickly realize that prices are affordable, and the shoes are really stylish in my opinion and durable too, hope you get inspired for your shopping!

Cactus leather shoes

Hello! If you are looking for shoes made with Cactus leather, you should try the collection from Carmona.

This footwear Mexican brand is founded by 3 sisters based in León Guanajuato, where making shoes is a tradition since generations.

These ladies have decided starting day one to join the ecological revolution, integrating sustainable and innovative materials into their products designs.

The leather they use in the creation of footwear is a soft, sustainable and partially organic product that replaces the use of animal leather and synthetics that harm the environment. Moreover all the materials are locally sourced in Mexico but also carefully hand made by local expert artisans with great care and attention!

Shipping is worldwide however it is relatively straightforward if you live in US or Canada (actually free within Mexico) but if you are based somewhere else you would need to drop them a message to get to know shipping accurate costs and estimated timelines.

My favorite piece of the collection is the pair of vegan combat boots, perfect combination with long skirts and different type of stockings to wear during cold season just ahead of us in Europe!

Hope you get inspired for your next shopping of vegan shoes, take care!
