RECYCLED MATERIAL FOOTWEAR
Grinvald Footwear by GTS Group
After being involved in the plastics and fashion industry for many years, we saw all the various environmental impacts that happen throughout the different stages of the leather supply chain, such as deforestation and extensive use of water and chemicals. We have put great focus on the development of re-using scrap leather. We also do not source raw materials from endangered, threatened or inhumanly treated species.
Grinvald Footwear is currently producing slides and sandals made of entirely re-usable, recycled materials. GTS Group is the responsible for the injection of these materials into footbeds, outsoles, uppers and all parts of the footwear. The main materials used in our current production are scrap leather and recycled plastics.
