SHOES MADE WITH
We are creating a world where the problem of garbage becomes an opportunity for people in need.
We are looking to become more than a shoe brand. We want to change the way business is made without betraying our ideals and enjoying to do what we love. We put people first and we believe that our project can become a space for positive social change.
In the productive process we chose to work with people in jail. We are working to generate general welfare of the people who produce our shoes. We don´t want just provide a job, we want to work with every individual that can be supported to achieve wholeness.

Creating a cost-effective company that enables us to meet our environmental and social objectives, as well as generate opportunities for the growth of every person involved in the project.
They represent and share our values; they want to wear our products and help anyway they can to make this a better world.
