MELA Vegan Fairtrade Sneakers
These MELA vegan Fairtrade sneakers are designed to last with eco-friendly materials ethically sourced like organic cotton and natural rubber.
Why did we choose the MELA sneakers?
MELA sneakers are a model of sustainability, both in terms of the materials used and the manufacturing conditions, but also from the design of the shoe itself. Indeed, the flexibility, comfort and slip resistance of the outsole have been tested and optimized with the expertise of their Indian producers. In addition, they have been designed to offer extra support and their longevity is ensured by a 360° seam between the canvas and the sole – a real high quality feature in shoe production.
MELA sneakers are certified by the Fairtrade Cotton Standard and the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).
MELA sneakers are built to last. MELAWEAR uses materials and manufacturing processes that are completely natural, free from toxic substances and harmless to the environment. In addition, they contain no animal by-products and are therefore cruelty-free.
Fair trade manufacturing
MELA sneakers are produced with full respect for the rights of workers and farmers throughout the chain. They are made in a socially responsible factory in India. At every step of the supply chain, farmers and workers receive a social premium. They invest this premium in community projects that they democratically choose.
The materials used
– The cotton canvas, made in India, is certified organic and Fairtrade.
– The outside of the shoe is made from a sturdy and breathable cotton canvas. The inner lining is made from sustainable organic cotton.
– An extra pair of organic cotton laces (color varying depending on the model) is also included.
– Vegetable rubber comes from responsible sources in Sri Lanka.
– The outsole is made of grippy and flexible natural rubber. The insole and contour are also reinforced with natural rubber for greater comfort.
– Thanks to the know-how of the manufacturers, the sole is stitched 360° around the shoe for greater resistance and longevity.
– The glue used to consolidate everything is a water-based GOTS-certified adhesive.
