On a #NoPlastic Mission
We´ve specifically chosen our materials to ensure a curated and high quality look, while fulfilling our high sustainability standards, which is reflected through our whole supply chain.
Our material selection is based on the implementation of materials that contain #NoPlastic and #NoToxins and therefore achieve maximum biodegradability.
With our material selection, we can prevent plastic pollution from microplastics that not only last hundreds of years on our planet but also contaminate our drinking water.
After thorough evaluation, the materials are sent to our production near Porto, Portugal where the Alfena sneakers are handmade with love and purpose.
Chrome - Free Vegetable Tanned Leather
Alfena uses 100% biodegradable, high quality, chrome-free, vegetable tanned leather.
During its process in Germany, the leather is sealed with premium natural fats and waxes, and is completely absent of a chemical coating which usually contains polluting color pigments and microplastics.
♡Please keep in mind; our leather is completely natural and needs to be cared for appropriately. So, don't forget to show your shoes some love once in a while! ♡
Our authentic uniquely handcrafted outer soles are Made in France and are individually handmade for you and your new Alfena shoe!
The 100 % natural outer soles absorb your natural movements and individually adapt your foot-form, creating a unique footbed for your shoe and foot.
The materials used for the outer sole posses a so-called alveolar microstructure which is basically small little air bubbles acting as a shock absorber!
TENCEL™ (A Lenzing AG) fibers are sustainably sourced from wood.
TENCEL™ fibers are 100% biodegradable, breathable, and sweat absorbent, providing comfort for your feet all day long.
