Petrucha - Sustainable design, clean and functional
We look for a sustainable design, clean, and functional, we try to re-use the same leathers and materials on new designs instead of replaced for a new ones, we find out new ways to improve or evolve them.
We work with leathers and cuirs vegetable tanned, recycled rubbers, dyes and glues water based, zippers without nickel , natural creams for finished that will not harm the environment ,insoles foam made of olive stones recycled, natural corks with very low percentage of tail pressing, and insoles made by eco insoling cellulose materials, all the components we use are certified by our suppliers .
We try to make the sale and the consume of our models sustainable in the way that models have long life, clients can order them at any time and every season.
For this reason, Petrucha has items that are far removed from collections, seasons and trends. They are continuity items, that never lose their value.
Our aim is to achieve good quality shoes lasting for long time.
