Terra Plana’s Sustainable Shoe Making Guided by Life Cycle Analysis
Terra Plana is an interesting blend of what many would call ethical footwear.
Inspired by ecological survival, Terra Plana believes in a variety of non-generic products and sustainable strategies. Guided by life cycle analysis, Terra Plana aims towards publishing accurate life cycle matrices for every product we produce. Reparability, lightness, anatomic design, and durability are all staples of sustainable shoe making. We at Terra Plana regularly re-evaluate what we can do to minimize waste and toxin use and maximize product use and love
Terra Plana has received international acclaim for their craftsmanship in publications like Vouge Italia (shown above) and also here on Feel Good Style in“Reason number one not to go barefoot this summer” we shared that:
- Terra Plana sources locally when possible to minimize transportation cost and impact
- they use recycled materials, like old parachutes
- stiletto soles are designed for complete comfort and handcrafted details are abound
