The vegetable-tanned leather used is free of harmful chromium and heavy metals such as cadmium and lead and therefore not only free of harmful substances and good for the skin, but also good for the environment. In addition to the health and environmental aspects, vegetable tanning also has other advantages: The lifespan of vegetable leather is much longer than that of chrome-tanned leather due to the gentler tanning processes. It also looks more alive than conventional types of leather. All skins are sourced exclusively from Europe and tanned in Spain, Portugal or Germany. The leather shoes are manufactured in a family business in Elche, Spain. When manufacturing the shoes, attention is paid to a consistently local production concept. All materials and accessories used come from the Elche area.
