The MELA vegan Fairtrade sneakers are ethically made in India in a socially responsible factory. At every step of the supply chain, farmers and workers have received a social premium. They invest this social premium in community projects they choose democratically.
MELA sneakers are designed for sustainability. MELAWEAR uses materials and making process that are 100% natural, with no toxic chemicals and doing no harm to the environment. Also, the shoes are made in the total respect of the farmers’ and workers’ rights across the supply chain. Moreover, they contain no by-product of animal origin and are cruelty-free.
The outer material is made from a robust and breathable organic cotton canvas. Also, the lining is made of a durable organic cotton fabric. The outer sole is made of grippy and flexible natural rubber. A natural rubber padding in the insole and around the heel has also been included for a greater confort.
Thanks to the know-how of the Indian manufacturers, the sole is sewn at 360° around the shoe for greater resistance and longevity. Thus, MELA sneakers combine modern design with the highest quality for people and the environment.
