’Our priorities are the reduction of emissions and energy use, fair trading, providing opportunities for communities and organic methods. We buy cotton from 320 families based in Brazil as well as source natural rubber from 60 families in the Amazon. Using a process called FDL, it allows the rubber tappers to transform latex into rubber sheets without any industrial intermediary processes permitting the local Seringeiros to sell semi-finished products and receive high incomes. Working based on a ‘zero stock’ philosophy, we only produce orders six month in advance to ensure that there is no wastage and our production adapts to the natural availability of cotton.' --Sebastien Kopp and Francois Morillion
Launched in 2004, VEJA was created by Sebastien Kopp and Francois Morillion, with the want to create a new kind of sneaker that would respect both human beings and the environment. Set up to work directly with small producer co-operatives in Brazil, they use materials such as organic cotton; Amazonian rubber and acacia tanned leather to create their classic silhouettes and accessories in seasonal colours and varied finishes. Working with old school inspirations and urban street style, their lace up creations are re-imagined through both low and high tops in numerous fabrics. The ethos of the brand is developed deeper in the holistic and transparent approach VEJA applies to every part of the supply chain through their manufacturing, production, logistics and fabrication.
