The collaboration gave birth to a 6-piece collection that combines recyclability with craftsmanship.
Respecting and Preserving

WOMSH’s vegan collection respects and preserves the environment by not only coming up with a new line of vegan trainers they have also created a modern purchasing philosophy based on consumers becoming more conscious and eco-friendly. On this, they state: “We want to increasingly extend our community and spread our values as much as we can so that they become everyday actions and gestures”.
Their partner of choice, Frumat is a company that won the ‘Technology and Innovation’ prize at Green Carpet Fashion 2018. The startups innovation was key in the production of the vegan trainers, which are 50% apple fibre and 50% polyurethane.
