Award-winning ethical shoe brand, Po-Zu , has unveiled its first 100% vegan Autumn/Winter 2019 collection, featuring shoes crafted using apple skin, coconut husks, cork, rubberised cotton and pineapple leaves.
The new collection features sneakers, cork trainers, flats and boots made with rubberised Fair Trade cotton. The line boasts wearable cool and urban styles that are as comfortable as they are gorgeous and ethical.
The soles of Po-Zu shoes are made with coconut husks or natural bouncy foam rubber Foot Mattress™ for comfort and durability and this season’s collection utilises new bio-based apple skin ‘vegan leather’, derived from the apple juice industry and grown organically in the Italian Alps. The brand says that this fabric is “highly breathable and durable and it diverts food waste.”
Po-Zu has been featured on the BBC, ITV and international news stations for its unique fibre-innovation and fit-for-purpose found-in-nature philosophy, including Stacey Dooley’s documentary The Truth About Fast Fashion which aired on the BBC last year.
Po-Zu founder Sven Segal comments: “As a lifelong vegetarian, I am passionate about delivering footwear that is sustainable, cruelty free yet doesn’t come at the cost of our planet. We are very excited to be integrating more and more vegan offerings at Po-Zu. To have a 100% fully vegan Mainline collection for AW19 is landmark for us,” Says Sven Segal, Founder.
