FOUNDED IN 2016 - UNITED KINDOM
Collection & Co creates sustainable footwear without compromising the stylish aesthetic. Designed in the UK, made in Greece and sold worldwide. Collection & Co began with an active attitude to provide vegan footwear with the use of non-animal leathers and non-animal glues. Our aim is to transcend the need for leather. Taking time to source sustainable materials that have the same look, feel and texture but without the cruelty.
With regards to sustainability & transparency, what are your core values that define how your brand operates?
Protecting the environment is at the core of our brand. In an effort to be more sustainable, we create projects to reuse materials that are discarded or left over from previous collections, so that nothing goes to landfill. Our packaging is 100% recyclable and mailing bags are compostable.
With regards to sustainability & transparency, what are the "hot topics" you are currently working on and try to improve yourself on?
We have developed projects to reuse materials, in an effort to be more environmentally conscious.
Projects include using discarded fishing nets for a healthy sea initiative and re-purposing them into bags. We also collaborated with Piñatex, which is an innovative and natural fibre made from pineapple leaves. The result is a durable, high quality fabric that is a great alternative to leather.
