We welcome a new brand at Sneaker District and this one has a very inspiring background. A sneaker brand that doesn’t only make fantastic looking sneakers but also infuses a positive impact everywhere they can. Curious much? Without further due: Who is VEJA?
VEJA is a Paris-based footwear brand and was founded in 2004. At VEJA they have been looking for an ecological way to make sneakers and therefore VEJA only works with small producers and cooperatives in Brazil and Peru. This way they have a unique production with a sustainable design. VEJA uses ecological and regenerated materials. For example: their soles are made from 18 – 22% natural rubber sourced straight from the Amazon area and for the upper VEJA uses organic cotton and recycled plastic. They work fairly with small cotton farmers in Brazil and ensure that they always have a secure income.
