Eating your vegetables is one thing but did you know most of the shoes you wear from 124 are vegetable dyed? All shoes are tanned from barks, branches, leaves and fruits which have been a traditional method of dyeing leather footwear. Our artisan makers all use vegetable dyes in their leathers. The superior quality of vegetable dyed shoes cannot be compared to fast fashion footwear that often use chemically treated leathers. While you might be paying more, this technique is mindful of the planet, so it’s essential to purchase a pair of carefully handcrafted footwear.
While we ensure all our shoes are vegetable dyed and our trainers use recycled rubbers, our packaging is also sustainable. Our boxes are made from 100 percent recycled cupboard and are able to be recycled after you have purchased them. All shoes come with individual shoe pouches reducing the amount of packaging and materials found in each pair of artisan luxury. Be assured at 124 your footwear is packaged with a conscious effort for looking after the environment.
Being environmentally friendly with all our products is something we take pride of at 124. Our daily operations as well as the way our artisan makers handcraft footwear puts sustainability at the forefront.
Slowly but surely we all can do our bit by making conscious decisions towards creating a more sustainable way of living.
