Nisolo is a climate-neutral company that is dedicated to enriching its workers’ lives through complete ownership of their production chain and the use of sustainably sourced leather that make these shoes really last.
As a @brightly.eco ambassador I was gifted a pair of these lovely Nisolo Chelsea boots to review and I'm in love. 🥰 I’m a huge fan of the brand’s commitment to ethical production and environmental sustainability. ♻️
In addition to paying their artisans a living wage, the company also ensures that they have access to health care, a healthy working environment, financial literacy training, business counseling, and more. They’re also working to combat climate change by protecting trees from deforestation in the Amazon and promoting a closed loop supply chain in collaboration with Soles4Souls
They even have a free Try at Home Program that gives you 7 days to test out their chic shoes and only be charged for what you choose to keep for those of you wary of buying shoes online.
But, can leather products really be ethical/sustainable? I honestly went back and forth about this. I don’t eat meat and I try to avoid products made from animals at all costs. However, I do believe that real leather products tend to last longer than vegan leather and other materials which have a shorter life span so I took that into consideration. I feel like I could pass these shoes down to my daughter or granddaughter one day. They are timeless, durable, and well-made.
The company is currently exploring alternative sustainable materials. I also think ethical sourcing of leather (i.e. animals that died of natural causes as opposed to food or fashion) would be a step in the right direction.
