Company bets on a more sustainable production process and total transparency with its customers

At Felmini, sustainability is a priority and the company is taking firm steps in this direction. It adapted the production process and bet on more environmentally friendly materials to reduce the ecological footprint of its shoes. The company led by Joaquim Moreira, wants transparency in the entire process, and for that reason it has taken a demanding path to ensure that whoever buys a pair of Felmini shoes is contributing to the future of the planet.

“Our main concern is the planet and transparency is not a choice: that’s why we feel our customers deserve to know where their shoes come from, how they are made and who makes them. We are committed to producing high quality footwear while maintaining a minimal footprint on our planet. For this, we focus our efforts on sustainable materials and practices so that we have a positive impact on people”, says Joaquim Moreira.

More sustainable processes and materials
Using more sustainable materials and production processes has been a path the company has taken, joining credible and certified partners, and the result is collections that are more and more friendly to the environment and people.

The leather, which is the main raw material used in the company, due to the excellent breathability, durability and comfort properties that this material provides to the shoes, comes from an importer with the Leather Working Group (LWG) seal, which guarantees the company that it is treated accordingly. with defined standards in order to reduce the impact on the environment.

Other materials that make up Felmini shoes are also selected taking into account this principle of sustainability and reliability. The company uses water-based glues and soles that take into account the principles of circular economy and recycling. Its famous textile linings, composed of 50% organic cotton and 50% recycled polyester, are certified with the Global Recycled Standard and the laces are made from recycled material.

And finally, the process of packaging and transporting products is not left out of this equation, either in the material used in packaging, or in the optimization of routes for product distribution.

The company believes that the sustainability path is made step by step and assumes that these concrete actions of integration of more ecological materials and components in the production process, have allowed the company to achieve its objective of reducing the Environmental Footprint.

“We have been proactively reducing our environmental footprint by integrating renewable energy, decreasing energy and water use, finding new markets for waste products and improving our traceability.

Our commitment to the responsible use of materials in our products is just one way we can achieve our goal:

Making Felmini a sustainable, conscious and socially responsible brand” says the company on a new page on its website, recently created and dedicated to sustainability. This was another initiative that the company implemented and which aims to communicate transparently with its customers, informing them about the production process and the materials used.

During a CTCP working visit to the company, in the context of supporting the implementation of processes and the development of more sustainable products, Joaquim Moreira assumes that he is aware of market trends and that the next collections will bring news and will be the most sustainable of whenever the company produced.

“This is an example of a more sustainable shoe,” says Joaquim Moreira, showing a boot that will go to market next winter. “This boot is produced in certified leather with the Leather Working Group (LWG) seal and a prefabricated sole incorporating rice husk and recycled rubber, with an exclusive finish of the brand, which gives it a more elegant and unique look” he concludes.

And so Felmini walks, step by step, “for a more sustainable world”.
