the hay is pressed and applied to a base layer and has the natural mountain scent. every alps-inspired pair is unique and the surface will change with time and get its own patina. the patented material was developed in germany and austria while the final sneakers are handmade in italy and produced under fair conditions in a new family-run workshop. all shoes are 100% vegan and equipped with a soft padded, anti-bacterial real cork insole. the parts looking like suede or nappa leather are made from recycled pet bottles. the collection can be first viewed at berlin’s new sustainable innovation and fashion hub neonyt / fashionsustain in berlin on january 19.
