Made with waste pulp from processing PINEAPPLE, BAMBOO and our TREE SAUCE.
100% VEGAN + 100% PLASTIC FREE SHOES
100% Natural built with the process waste from BAMBOO and PINEAPPLE. Tracking and offsetting our carbon usage so we can be CARBON NEUTRAL.
Made with waste pulp from processing bamboo and pineapple. That same resin can bond particles of ground plant pulp into a leather replacement that is treated and textured to feel just as soft, supple and great fitting as natural leather.
TREE SAUCE is magic. We spend thousands of hours testing our tree resin based binder, cooking and treating our recipe to deliver a revolution in making of sustainable shoes. Naturally sourced and just as strong as petroleum based binders.
Natural Rubber is the best. We work with ethical rubber manufacturing to gather our raw ingredients and then they are treated with TREE SAUCE to make it hardened and long lasting.
We believe in a future with that is cruelty free to animals and the planet. To that end we invented something awesome! TREE SAUCE is a natural tree resin based binder that will revolutionise natural/sustainable material creation.
We are so proud of our new technology and your support of this campaign will show the big footwear brands that waste pulp materials can succeed at scale.

Vegan leather products have meant buying plastic, we've here to change that. Our shoes are made from reclaimed plant waste and turning it into our awesome leather replacement material.
Each shirt is made from 100% recycled materials and offered in two different fits (male/female) and a variety of colors and sizes.
Colors: White, Grey, Black Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL
6.12 KG CO2e / PAIR is our average carbon footprint. We are constantly looking to improve our process and reduce the carbon water and material usage. Each shoe receives a carbon offset tree planting for the lifetime carbon content it creates.
Grown Materials. We replace leather which is one of the highest carbon output materials in the footwear and garment industries with plant based waste materials bound together with our natural TREE SAUCE.
Waste into Use is a big deal. We aim to source unwanted materials that would otherwise be thrown away and use new processes to make them into useful products.
The leather making process is bad. Tannery effluent contains large amounts of pollutants, such as salt, lime sludge, sulfides, and acids. Arsenic, a common tannery chemical, has long been associated with lung cancer when people are exposed to it on a regular basis, and studies of leather-tannery workers in Sweden and Italy had cancer risks “between 20% and 50% above [those] expected.”
