PERÚS X FAMACO
Inspired by the eponym lines
The Nazca lines (geoglyphs) are a core part of the peruvian heritage. They were traced in the ground by the locals, between 500 B.C. and 500 A.D. Their meaning is still unknown and still fascinates scientists and historians around the world.
Our sneakers are handmade by the team of the Caminhar factory in Portugal. To decorate this collection, we chose embossed patterns. We particularly appreciate this technique for its sustainability and its neutral environmental impact. Here, no chemical components are used, the patterns are simply engraved on a metal sheet heated at 115°, before being hot pressed directly onto the suede.
Why Portugal ?
We believe a strong social commitment goes hand in hand with a strong environmental commitment. That is why our Nazca are made in Fafe, in Portugal. This allows to limit their transport and therefore, their carbon footprint. In addition, this region is world-renowned for the expertise of its artisans and the quality of their shoes !
Why do we use pre-orders ?
Pre-orders allow us to produce the right amount of products and to limit industrial waste. We also get to include you into our production process ! This enables us to limit the risks we take on our new collections. In return, and to thank you for your trust, we propose special rates on our new products during launches. Finally, using our pre-order system is the guarantee that each article is made for you, with care and in sustainable conditions !
We are in collaboration with the NGO Los Chicos de Cusco that supports four schools in poor villages around Cusco in Peru. For each bag sold, we donate one euro. This represents the cost to send one pupil to school for a day, including the teacher’s salary, school supplies and uniforms.
