Amazingly beautiful vegetable tanned leather shoes, handcrafted jewellery and accessories, that actively make the world a better place. Here’s Nisolo!
Nisolo wants to push the fashion industry in a more sustainable direction, where success is based on more than just offering the cheapest price. You can check out the very inspiring video of how the brand was created.
They’ve built their own facility in Trujillo — Peru’s shoemaking capital — from the ground up. We’re proud to support a brand that can certify that 100% of their producers are 18 years or older, that 100% of their producers’ children are attending school and pays their producers on average 33% more than fair trade wages. Have a look a their impact report if you want to read even more heart-warming news about their impact!
Their entire jewellery collection is made from upcycled materials by independent artisans in Kenya. They believe that partnerships with independent artisans are one of the best methods for job creation in low-income environments and are also a way to preserve generational craftsmanship. Their goal is to provide consistent product orders and free business counselling in order to support local community leaders’ efforts of eradicating extreme poverty.
Sorry if we seem to brag but, Nisolo seems to have it all! On top of their admirable manufacturing ethics, they teamed up with Soles4Souls, whose mission is to create sustainable jobs and provide relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world. You can basically send your worn and used shoes to Nisolo, they will then be given to micro-entrepreneurs in developing countries, enabling them to clean, repair, and resell the shoes in their communities.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: At the moment, Nisolo only delivers within North America.
