Veja, for a better world

July 14, 2011



When they hit the market in 2005, Veja shoes got a lot of attention, for they were  the first ecological trainers brand respecting both humans and the environment. Clean design – organic cotton from the Northeast of Brazil – wild Amazonian rubber and ecological leather – workers’ rights are respected : their look and story  had all to seduce. Great news, mini versions of the green shoes, inspired by the adults style, are now making their way to success. 2-10 years old.

Available from September at Elias & Grace, Petit Aime, Marie Chantal, Bonpoint, Galleries Lafayette, Bellerose

“I am very excited to be here today and took some time to think about something nice I wanted to share on Pirouette. I am living in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and the last days have been awful. Grey skies, lots of rain, wind… just terrible. To cheer up our moods we paint rainbows…lots of beautiful, colourful and happy rainbows.This is when I thought… lets do a rainbow post! Something for everybody, boys, girls, babies, deco, play….and LOTS of colours. Hope you will like it!”. Peggy, Paul&Paula
