For each Rarámuri Sandal sold, we are happy to say we plant a tree with the help of the non-profit organisation One Tree Planted. As we are inspired by the beautiful Rarámuri Indians who are still practicing a traditional lifestyle in the high sierras of Mexico, our aim is to be as close to nature as they are. Ecology and fair fashion are key values of our brand.
The Rarámuri believe the world started with the sun kissing the moon, a spiritual encounter that created a tidal wave, wiping everything out and leaving nothing but some little seeds on earth. Out of these budding seeds the Rarámuri Indians are believed to have arisen.
Honouring the Rarámuri’s creation story, we love to give something back to Mother Earth, by planting our own seeds. One Tree Planted seeds trees for us all over the world through the funding each sold Rarámuri Sandal generates.
We plant trees all over the world. We’ve planted forests in Kenya, Guatemala, Indonesia, and the Amazon rainforest.
