Imagine taking the same rubber outsole of the Havaianas flip-flop and turning it into a sneaker. Its timeless upper design is hand stitched to the rubber outsole, making it a comfortable and lightweight sneaker that can be worn all year long. The design also features a foldable piece at the heel that enables people to wear it as a slipper. The Origine sneaker is made of jute fibers whose cultivation is the main economic activity for over 50,000 families living near the Amazon region. The material used is free from pesticides and fertilizers and they decompose faster than conventional fibers, therefore reducing impact on the environment.
