Why Cruelty-free Leather?

We are trying to change people’s perception of man-made materials. People still equate leather with quality. This is not true. There’s a ton of horrible quality leather, and much of it isn’t a by-product of the beef industry. This kills the argument that animal leather is part of the food supply chain.

Many will argue that man-made leathers are created with harsh chemicals and non-organic materials. This is also not true. Right now, there are leather alternatives made from pineapple, mushrooms, and other natural, organic sources.

And we are not alone. Many countries now require man-made leathers pass intensive testing and certification processes. This stringent oversight doesn’t apply to animal leathers, so there’s no guarantee to their environmental impact.

Our Vegan Leather

Solvent free and low on PU content, our vegan leather is the finest eco-friendly polyurethane microfiber based material from Japan. We selected them because they are leaders in their field of synthetic leather. They are fully traceable and are very aware of the environmental impact these kinds of materials can have. So they make sure they do their best to lower their carbon footprint and chemical emissions. Want to find out more? We introduce you to trace them.

Their manufacturing facility has successfully been conducting such CO2 reduction activities as increasing biomass fuel volume, using waste plastic as fuel, ensuring higher operating efficiency, and installing energy-saving equipment. They also have consistently been working to implement conservation activities that include promoting measures against global warming, managing chemical substance emissions, and ensuring beneficial use of waste.

Our Fabric

HEXA sources fabrics that include “Cold Pad Batch” dyed materials. This process uses 40% less water than regular dyeing, less energy since it’s done at room temperature, no salt, and less chemicals. This means much less wastewater. In addition to eco-friendly processes, all our fabrics have superior color fastness.

Our supplier also only uses the highest-grade chemicals and dyes from Huntsman, a well-known German textile firm. Our customers can be confident that our fabrics are free from hazardous substances.

Our Linen Jute fabric contains 60% Jute and 40% Cotton. We love Jute. Jute grows easily without any pesticides or fertilizers and is considered an eco-friendly material. The factory also has a water-recycling program. Around 30% is re-used steam, and there is an in-house wastewater treatment program which the Thai authorities monitor. They are committed to returning clean water to the environment and reducing energy usage.

Our Sport Foam Insoles

We work with an American-based supplier that ensures their manufacturing facilities around the world processes and reuses wastewater. When the recycled water can’t be reused, their system converts it into solid refuse that is treated to the strictest environmental standards.

Their proprietary plant-based bio-oil comes from castor beans. Castor beans are a non-food source that doesn’t compete with food crops and uses very little water to grow. This rapidly renewable plant has been naturalized in warm climates all over the world and can grow ten feet in a single
season. Using castor oil reduces the need for petroleum in their foam and uses fewer natural resources to produce.

They also use recycled rubber, keeping over 300 metric tons of rubber out of landfills each year. We get eco-friendly, reduced petroleum solutions to create insoles with uncompromised comfort and performance, while dramatically limiting the impact on the planet.

Tested in Space, and Right Here on Earth

Outlast® technology is the only phase change material that carries the Certified Space Technology™ seal of approval. The technology was first developed for use by NASA, and continues to be developed and tested for efficacy and safety, across multiple applications, for major brands around the world. Outlast currently holds over 96 patents related to thermally adaptive materials.

 

With almost any footwear brand, you're faced with the difficult task of balancing quality and style with comfort. The phase change materials (PCM) in Outlast® technology can facilitate that balancing act by helping to reduce heat and moisture to reduce blisters and increase comfort.

As Outlast® technology proactively responds to changes in foot temperature, it absorbs, stores and releases heat to reduce sweat and odor. It’s a benefit that provides greater comfort and healthier feet all day long. From socks and insoles to sneakers, shoes, boots and safety gear, the Outlast® technology developed for NASA can keep your customers just as comfortable - please have a look at our short footwear video. The following are some examples of footwear products and the appropriate Outlast® material to use.
