“We wanted to use the platform that Annie & Lori has built through the years to promote sustainable fashion and to do our share in reducing our impact on the environment,” Faith Mijares, founder and head designer of Annie & Lori, said.
Vegetable tanning is the process of turning cowhide into leather using natural materials, without harmful chemicals that are usually used in the process. Products used in vegetable tanning are highly durable and biodegradable that—with proper care—can last a lifetime.
The Vegetable-Tanned Leather collection showcases four fashionable easy-wear, slip-on sandals with extra sole cushion and a black in-sole for easy maintenance. All the sandals in the collection are available in natural and maroon colors.
There are four shoes under the Vegetable-Tanned Leather collection.
Esther (Php 1,990) features an easy-wear leather slip-on that boasts a unique and stylish twist.
