We are always cruelty-free and 100% vegan using the latest cutting-edge and high-quality materials. Our shoes are versatile, multi-use, seasonless, and made to effectively reduce landfill waste. All of our products and packaging are designed consciously and sourced responsibly.
100% Organic Cotton Sock Lining
The soft and breathable organic cotton is safer for growers, using less energy and producing 94% less greenhouse gas emissions. Free of toxic dyes, hazardous pesticides, allergenic, and carcinogenic substances, the organic cotton we use is Global Organic Textile Standard certified.
A renewable and sustainable resource that is as durable as leather and as versatile as fabric. It is incredibly soft, lightweight and water resistant.
While our lining has a leather look and texture, it is genuinely non-leather! This breakthrough material is highly absorbent, breathable and quick drying with a superior hand feel to ensure your feet stay comfortable and dry from day to night.
APPLE PEEL SKIN
A bio-based vegan leather material derived from organic apples grown in the Italian Alps. This revolutionary material is highly breathable and just as durable if not more so than genuine and synthetic leathers.
Made from microfiber, our vegan calfskin is soft and supple to the touch. It is not only highly breathable, absorbent, self-shaping, and antibacterial, it also meets the European REACH standards regarding toxic substances.
Post-Consumer PET Bottle Fabric
A head-turning floral pattern, our soft, silky Signature Orchid print fabric is made from 100% recycled and repurposed bottles. About 4 500ml PET bottles are recycled for each pair of VEERAH shoes, greatly reducing the amount of waste going directly into landfills and the ocean.
Made in Italy, our vegan microfiber suede has the same luxurious look and touch of premium suede, but is cruelty-free and meets the European REACH standards regarding toxic substances.
Made in Italy. PVC Free, and 100% cruelty-free. This soft and substantial materials is wrinkle-free and water resistant. It far exceeds the European REACH standards regarding toxic substances.
VEERAH’s Custom Insole
Not only do our soles provide incredible comfort and long-term support, they are also environmentally friendly, highly breathable and antimicrobial. Our memory foam and cushioning uses a bio-based formulation that replaces 20-50% of the petroleum typically used with a substitute derived from castor beans resulting in a reduced carbon footprint.
VEERAH’s Custom Outsole
The outsole is constructed from Italian resin with a luxurious look and feel along with a soft and flexible German waterproof TPU for optimal comfort for the balls of your feet. It is 20% more durable than a leather outsole and offers 20% more anti-slip functionality. The VEERAH Knot, an emblem inspired by the Endless Knot, represents the union of infinite wisdom and compassion and beautifully marks the bottom of each shoe.
In order to protect the shoes during transit, we use recycled stuffing paper. Recycling one ton of paper saves 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 380 gallons of oil, 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space and 4,000 kilowatts of energy - which is enough to power the average U.S. home for six months, according to the National Recycling Coalition.
Shoebox and FSC Paper
Our beautifully designed shoebox can be reused to add color to your home or office and store flat for later use. The vivid color is printed with soy ink and the paper is Forest Stewardship Council-certified meaning that it comes from responsibly managed forests where trees harvested are replaced or allowed to regenerate naturally and parts of the forest are protected to protect rare plants and animals.
In sharp contrast to traditional petroleum-based ink, soy-based ink is renewable, biodegradable and free of toxic materials. It is also a helpful component in paper recycling, as soy ink can be removed more easily than oil-based ink from paper during the bleaching process.
Tree-Free Stone Paper
We wrap our products with stone paper that is made from stone powder and non-toxic resin. It does not require water or toxic chemical bleach for its production. Moreover, it requires 85% less energy to produce than regular paper and is photodegradable (degrades within 14-18 months of sunlight). It is recyclable with plastic and is both tear and water resistant.
Dust Bag made from 100% Recycled PET Bottles
Recycled PET bottle fabric is beautiful, durable and thoughtful of our environment. According to the Ocean Conservancy, Americans buy an estimated 42.6 billion plastic water bottles each year, and during that time, enough plastic is thrown away to circle the earth 4 times. Each VEERAH bag is made from 4 to 5 500ml bottles which means less landfill waste and ocean pollution.
We know we can do more and are always looking for high quality, high function, cruelty-free and more eco-friendly options. If you have any suggestions, we will be so happy to hear from you at doGood@veerah.com. Thank you!
