The French brand Veja began life in 2004 and was the vision of French founders Sébastien Kopp and Ghislain Morillion.
Using small producers in Brazil, this ethically orientated shoe brand uses organic cottons from the North of Brazil, wild Amazonian rubber and ecological leathers to create their original shoes.
Veja buys the cotton for its shoes from 320 different families in North Brazil. These families make their living from the organic farming of cotton.
Did you know that it is in the Amazon that you can find rubber trees growing in the wild ? ! Veja works in conjunction with associations inside the 'Chico Mendes Extractive reserve' to sustainably harvest rubber for the Veja sneakers / trainers.
