Quality sneakers with an aim to do good for the environment and people.
Lacess crafts quality sneakers with an aim to do good for the environment and people. By embracing sustainability, they aim to craft shoes that have minimal to positive impact to the environment. They also partner with a NGO called Compassion First that fights against human trafficking and for every pair sold, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to their work.
Lacess has a long term vision to educate consumers on sustainable fashion and influence their consumption choices. But most importantly, they are endeavouring to bring an end to human trafficking in this lifetime. Their mission sees them providing premium sustainable footwear that will reduce the number of leather scraps and other non-degradable waste from entering our landfills and natural eco-systems. They further actively advocate against human-trafficking and support NGO’s that are on the front lines fighting this fight via finances and volunteering.
The Fashion Industry has a textile waste problem, but Lacess reduce waste by repurposing leather scraps and by using single-use plastic bottles as their core materials. They also reuse 95% of the water used in the dying process and eliminate as many effluents as possible. Their insoles are made from natural cork and recycled rubber.
POWER TO THE PEOPLE: For every pair of Lacess shoes sold, they donate a portion to Compassion First to support victims of human trafficking.
PROTECT THE PLANET: Their manufacturing process is almost closed-loop therefore reducing their impact on the planet. Lacess also used recycled materials like leathers and plastics in their production, cork for their insoles and 100% Plant-based Tencel™ in their lining to ensure their shoes are of the least possible strain on the environment.
