Veja sets the bar for sustainable footwear. The brand was founded in 2005 on principals of conscious production throughout its' entire manufacturing process. The shoes are made in southern Brazil on the border of the Amazonian rainforrest. Veja makes a point to locally source as much of the materials as possible, from rubber to vegan leather, all from organic farming and ecological agriculture. The shoes are produced in equally conscious working environments, that give back to local communities instead of taking away.
