The idea behind a pair of VEJA's shoes is that you are standing up with one foot in design and the other in social responsibility. VEJA is a French born shoe company that was created with a vision to evoke cultural change. VEJA offers a different perspective in the shoe industry that combines fair trade and ecology and links together economy, social initiatives and the environment. They use organic or recycled and fairly traded cotton for the canvas of the shoes and wild and fairly traded rubber for the soles. Recycled plastic bottles are also used to create technological fabrics while all products are made in a high standard factory in Brazil.
VEJA believes in sustainability, and is a proud Certified B Corporation brand. Additionally, all tanneries VEJA purchases are LWG Gold through Leather Working Group.
