We are on the mission to help your brand understand what sustainable footwear development means.
WE ALWAYS STRIKE FOR THE BEST AVAILABLE OPTION WITHOUT COMPROMISING FUNCTION.
Since the beginning, we are on the mission to rethink the development of footwear.
We believe in a more sustainable future in the footwear industry and challenge each step of the value chain. Along your journey to create eco-friendly footwear, we make sure fundamental objectives are met.
STRIKE FOR QUALITY = DURABILITY
How does it help to use materials that cannot fulfil the objective function of the shoe? Nothing. We always strike for the best available option without compromising the core function.
Shoes made of coffee, bamboo and recycled PET sound sustainable at first. But is it really? Our approach is to go one step further to highlight negative as well as positive features of innovative materials.
TRANSPARENCY & KNOWLEDGE SHARING
Only those who understand the big picture can pass it on to their customers. We love transparency and pass on our knowledge and insights to you to share with your customers.
PARTNER-UP & INVEST CONCIOUSLY
This mission can only be accomplished with the right partners. We select partners who have understood sustainability as an integral part of our future.
Our goal is not to sell sustainability. We follow an educational approach that you can pass on to your customers with a clear conscience.
// Bamboo CAROCAL FIBER
This material comes from Nantou’s 4-year-old bamboo, which has dense vascular bundles and is burned at 800℃ in a traditional clay kiln after it is air dried. Finished bamboo charcoal has a glossy surface and clinks when it is knocked. Through micron grinding and biochemical technology, it can produce quality yarn.

// COCONUT CAROCAL FIBER
Coconut shells can be used to produce coconut charcoal. The wastes can not only be recycled and fully used, but positive benefits of environmental protection can also be achieved, therefore this is an important environment friendly fiber. Mixed with polyester and other chemicals, it becomes coconut-charcoal master-batch, and using polyester as diluting vector, it is spun into coconut-charcoal filament and staple fibers
// COFFEE CAROCAL FIBER
The yarn is made from waste material of coffee grounds. The material provides UV ray protection and up to 200% quicker drying than cotton. The nano metallic particles can effectively inhibit bacterial metabolism which reduces odor. It can cool down skin temperature by 1-2 C° making the workout more comfortable.
