These shoes belong to the Azores Collection – the first collection using the weaving patterns from Ilha Terceira, Azores. This collection was inspired by the traditional weavings of the Azorean island’s quilts - Repasso. The motifs used in blankets were minimized, redrawed and new colours were added. The weavings were made by the artisan Eduarda Vieira, in Terceira Island, Azores and were certified by CRAA (Centro Regional de Artesanato dos Açores).

Cork is a natural material, recyclable, sustainable and vegan. It’s a very lightweight material, super soft, extremely flexible and easy to clean. We use cork from a Portuguese company, which have a natural forest and plantations of Cork Oak in Alentejo (south of Portugal). All the little pieces of cork are recycled multiple times. It’s a sustainable material used by NASA in the Space Aircrafts due to its properties.
