Jus' ran across SMARTFISH handmade footwear and thought I would share with the ladies.
SMARTFISH footwear is handmade, and completely sustainable. Shoes are created without the use of any adhesives, and are 100% vegan.
Upper: Durable natural brown hemp canvas.
Insoles: Salvaged cork, that has been coated with natural latex, for added durability. Insoles are removable, so that shoes may be turned inside out and hand-washed.
Lining: Organic bamboo, hand-dyed using low-impact fiber reactive dyes. Bamboo is naturally breathable, odor-absorbing, and anti-bacterial.
Construction: All dying, cutting, sizing, patterning, hand-detailing, and outsole molding is hand done by Alisha. Final construction is done using an industrial sewing machine. Outsoles are sewn by Alisha, after training from a local cobbler, and use of one of his machines. All construction is done with a focus on durability.
