Form and Fauna creates stylish lines of women’s shoes from sustainable and renewable resources. The heels are made from bamboo or other regenerative woods and the insoles and lining come from recycled yoga mats.
Bay Bertea was once a yoga instructed and is now the designer behind the Form and Fauna label. She has melded her two lives to bring forth a sexy shoe line that uses no leather (yes, they have vegan shoes for the fashionista) that “honor both style and the animal kingdom within our design process.”
Some of the materials and methods used include:
- non-toxic biodegradable Italian synthetics
- organic hemp
- recycled fiber insoles
- water based glues
- fair trade
- cruelty free
- hand made in the US.
"Our intention is to design shoes that are chic, naturally derived, unique, and comfortable. We honor both style and the animal kingdom within our design process."
