The process of creating our Kicks brings together artisans from various communities, because we believe we are stronger together. We are dedicated to improving the lives of these artisans, and putting all our stakeholder␣s welfare at the front and center of any design or business decisions. We seek to make the most positive impact possible through our process. Our Kicks showcase amazing artistic talents and traditions on several levels. First, the Mola textile is crafted by the indigenous Kuna women of Panama and Colombia. The Mola is an artform that has been around for hundreds of years, and the Kuna are the only women in the world with this amazingly intricate skill. By working together to create shoes and other goods, we are opening opportunities for hundreds of women artisans to drive demand for their craft, preserve their traditions, and empower them to rise out of poverty.
The next step in our process happens in Central Colombia, where we are working with a small, tight-‐knit group of traditional shoemakers and cobblers who in turn work with an entire eco system of artisans: leather producers, natural rubber harvesters, and natural fiber producers. Our small group of highly skilled shoe makers have over 150 years of combined experience in the art of shoemaking, and it truly is an art. Each component is lovingly selected, crafted, and created into a one-‐of-‐a-‐kind pair of the most comfortable shoes you've ever worn! And when we say one-‐of-‐a-‐kind, we mean it. No two are even remotely alike, each one showcases the artistic expression and creativity of the artist. Rock your world by supporting authentic art, the communities behind your products, and being unique!
