Pretty&fair

We are pretty fair at Pretty&Fair, that’s why we created a shoe brand that is 100% fair to people and fair to the planet.

Shopping isn’t only about what you wear, it’s also about where it came from. So wouldn't it be great to wear a brand that helps to build
the world and look fantastic while doing so!

About Us

we create durable shoes that walk comfortable and look great.
so who are we?


We are a Dutch brand, the creator behind PRETTY&FAIR, Alinda van Teeckelenburgh, has worked in the
shoe industry for over 15 years.

Her passion is fashion. She is a true animal lover and vegetarian by heart. While working in shoe business it grew on her that production of shoes is more about price and numbers than about Planet and People.
So Alinda started making fashionable shoes in an ecological and fair manner. Convinced that you can look great AND be good to the world!

We proudly present: PRETTY&FAIR. We hope you enjoy wearing our shoes as much as we enjoy creating them.

*Materials used for our vegan 'Happy Veggie' collection are made of Hightech animal-free materials, 99% of these vegan materials are also eco-friendly. 

Sustainable

 

Pretty&Fair is founded in 2016.
We strive to become the most sustainable and ecolocic shoe brand in the world.

Every ingredient that goes into our shoes has been carefully selected to be the most sustainable product available.

Our shoes are made in Portugal in a small family-owned factory, where people work normal hours for a proper salary.

We only use natural rubbers for the soles, our zippers are made of recycled PET bottles, our insoles, contreforts and shanks are biodegradable and our glue is on water-base.


If you have any specific questions or would like to receive detailed information about our products used, please contact us.

Maakwijze

 

De gehele PRETTY&FAIR collectie wordt geproduceerd in een kleine fabriek in Portugal waar de vakmensen een eerlijke beloning krijgen. Op dit moment wordt in het noorden van het land gebouwd aan een nieuwe ecologische gecertificeerde schoenfabriek.

Onze ecologische leerlooierij gebruikt boomschors in plaats van chroom om de huiden te looien. Chroom staat bekent om zijn giftige uitwerkingen op zowel de natuur als de mensen die ermee in aanraking komen. De looierij werkt grotendeels op zonne-energie van hun eigen zonnepanelen.

       
 

Het water wat wordt gebruikt tijdens het proces zuiveren ze zelf en wordt later weer hergebruikt. 

           
 

Het looien van de ecologische huiden wordt gedaan in speciale houten tonnen.

            

 

With the organic shoe-products of Collonil you can maintain your shoes in an ecological way. Both for the ecological leathers as for the vegan materials.

 

wet Vegan shoes

 

To dry out wet shoes, put them in an airy position away from direct heat.
Heat will activate the glues used to hold together the shoes and they may then start to come apart.
