It may not be exactly sandal season in the UK but our story is too cool not to share!
Ecowolfe, an eco-friendly and environmentally conscious company, has launched a line of sensational sandals that are made from natural vegetable tanned leathers with outsoles made from recycled rubber.
Ecowolfe’s’ sandal technology enables the insole to adapt to the natural shape of your foot to provide increased comfort throughout the day. There is also an additional comfort layer that cushions your entire foot for more comfort and shock absorption.
The hard, flat and uneven surfaces we walk on each day, and the hours we spend on our feet, demand comfortable sandals. Unfortunately, many sandals sold today don’t incorporate the qualities that provide the comfort and stability we need day to day, often leading to foot pain. With Ecowolfe’s Luxury Sandals comfort and stability come as standard.
Ecowolfe’s sandals are made with vegetable tanned leather that does not use harmful chemicals. This is an artisanal process that takes advantage of the natural acids found in some plant species, by using the barks, branches, leaves and even some fruits in specific techniques. The natural appearance has a slightly brownish tinge with a natural, woody and earthy smell.
Using vegetable tanned leathers has big advantages unsurpassed by any other tanning methods. Vegetable tanned leather was recently salvaged to provide an alternative material in fashion, as well as to make use of its high quality.
The benefits of vegetable tanned leather include the following:
- its high durability and strength, being even far more efficient than the majority of the synthetic materials meaning that it will last longer than mass produced items,
- its neutral effect on user’s health due to no nasty chemicals being used;
- it can last an entire lifetime and/or is bio-degradable when it ceases to be used/maintained,
- it is obtained from cattle that carried out a good life, to get a strong leather, and is a sub-product of the meat industry,
So why choose vegetable-tanned leather goods? Because you will be making a responsible choice and helping to protect the planet. Reading this and other information on consumerism will make you aware about what you are buying. In this case, a product that will last a lifetime, enabling you to consume less and diminish your footprint on the environment. You will be acquiring a natural canvas to record your life experiences.
A truly inspiring brand!
