The idea behind a pair of VEJA: standing up with one foot in design and the other in social responsibility. They take longer to create their shoes than other massive brands. They love creating sneakers that they’ll be proud to wear in 10 years. The attention they bring to each step of the production process is thorough. They weren’t designers initially, however they put in the time and that’s what they became.
Fairtrade is one of the three fundamental pillars VEJA relies on doing business. Cotton and rubber are sourced directly from producers in Brazil. They sign 1-year contracts with them and set a market-decorrelated price. It’s one of the ways to ensure more equitable and dignified commercial transactions.
Collaborating with co-operatives of small-scale farmers across Brazil, Veja uses organic and fair-trade cotton, wild Amazonian rubber and ecologically-tanned leathers to make sneakers and accessories that respect both the environment and the dignity of the workers involved.
