Vegan shoes brand B_Boheme’s new innovative collection
B_Boheme, the pioneers of the vegan shoe fashion industry, has launched their first new collection for two years. The affordable luxury shoe brand is one of the few vegan shoe producers who also focus on sustainability, in both their materials and in their processes.
The popular vegan footwear brand decided not to release new collections during the height of the pandemic and instead focussed on reviewing their processes to further reduce their environmental footprint. Now, every pair of shoes is made to order, ensuring production is sustainable and that each pair is handcrafted for the owner.
Founder of B_Boheme, Alicia Lai explained; “The fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries on the planet. Part of that is the unsustainable materials used, even in other vegan shoes, but there is also a huge amount of waste due to products not being sold. By manufacturing the shoes only when they’re ordered we can avoid that. It does mean that we’ve turned our back on fast fashion, our customers have to be more patient, but we know that most of them are as passionate about the environment as we are.”
In the B_Boheme world, looking great is as important as great provenance. To encourage ethical fashion choices B_Boheme shoes make no compromise on design. The distinctive B_Boheme styles are inspired by nature, architecture, street style and vintage. The shoes are designed by a team of specialists in the UK and crafted in Portugal. The new collection features glamorous flats (many with sequin and crystal chain detail) and stylish yet practical sneakers.
The shoes are 100% vegan (even down to the glues and the processes used for making the shoes). Materials used in this innovative collection include polymers extracted from cereal crops (replacing crude oil) which is combined with viscose obtained from tree pulp, and recycled polyester textile obtained from recycled bottles. The resulting materials are hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial and temperature regulating. The shoes are hard-wearing and made to last.
