Read more about cactus leather here. The material is extraordinarily leather-like and boasts strong durability and water resistant test results. While the cacti's farming process is carbon negative, we have found non-virgin inputs for both the insole and sole: cork and coffee ground waste. These changes add strength to our footwear arsenal.
Technicians at our factory partner are paid monthly for 12 cycles. For 2 months of the year, August and December, the entire factory has paid leave, plus an additional 22 days to use at the employees' discretion. As the factory specializes in the high quality but time consuming goodyear and blake constructions, workers must be highly skilled. These employees see a 15% higher wage than the average footwear industry in Portugal.
