This time I have some exciting news for you! amazing ZATTARO company and I are working together to provide you some very interesting posts! And so far I'll make a little preview of them and suggest you to help those guys to raise money on Kickstarter to launch their stuff abroad and keep the production of awesome warm handmade shoes local Bolivian.
Why am I telling you about those guys? There are a lot of reasons so just few of them:- Social mission. ZATTARO works with craftswomen from local communities in Bolivia who previously had two and even three part time jobs to cover their daily expenses and that of their families. Most of them are also divorced, which adds another difficulty in their lives, both socially and economically. They are turning that around and giving them the power to change their lives by providing them with a job, capacity training and education so that they become leaders of change in their communities.
- Use of recycled wool. Our early designs were characterized for the use of recycled wool, making their shoes 80% organic.
- Alpaca Wool. From Andean highlands, Alpaca wool is characterized for being hypoallergenic, having natural sheen and elasticity, ideal for producing a shoe that can be comfortably worn year long.
- Rubber outer-soles. A shoe that will not only be comfortable and friendly to the foot, but that will also last through your monthly, weekly, daily, hourly use wherever you take it to. Our rubber soles are also non-slip, keeping stability no matter the surface.
- and much more!
And wait for me to come on my blog!
Have a nice day,
