impact transportation of these materials.
HOW TO MAKE SUSTAINABLE VEGAN SHOES?
Insecta is both a vegan & ecological brand!
Few people know it but creating a vegan product doesn't systematically means creating an ecological product. Most of time Vegan product are very armful for the planet as they are made out of synthetic and plastic fibers.
With the fact that the fashion industry is the second most polluting industry after oil, at Klow we believe than no one should have to choose between an environmentally friendly product and a vegan product, and this is why we love so much Insecta.
Insecta has been certified Benefit corporations (B Corps) and won a PETA Vegan Fashion Awards in the category most talented new designer ECOERA in 2015 and a Bronze Seal sustainable Origin.
Insecta shoes are made of used clothing from thrift store, recycled PET bottles, recycled cotton, recycled rubber.
They only use vegan materials.
The creative process always starts taking into account the mix of materials they find and does not follow season or fashion trends.
The raw material is almost all bought in the same state,
in order to promote the local industry and reduce environmental impact transportation of these materials.
Insecta wants to grow to carry on their message, and one day they can have a foundation and become a social business,
where part of the profit will be reverted to the planet and society as a form of positive social impact.
"We Believe that the product is a
materialization of these messages."
Their insole is in beehive format, recycled materials and all padded with foam. It is 100% recycled with the textile surplus of their own production.

SOMETHING WE DO NOT HAVE!"
"There are times when life accelerates:
walk in a hurry, just for walking.
But if each person can change course,
the ones and the ones in the world, why stay on autopilot?
Conscious steps lead to more righteous places.
greener and more profitable.
And they do dance beyond the two here, two there.
So we go with Insecta Shoes.
From footwear to footwear,
sure to impact what is around the softness and
by singularity. Remapping routes all the time
- without measuring distances or shortening wills -
we slowed down to find the
way the inspiration that renews the daily life,
gives breath to the future and turns the ground into
something closer to the clouds.
