BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE!

OUR SUSTAINABILITY MANIFESTO

At ELVARDI, sustainability isn't just a buzzword—it's our commitment to the planet and our customers. We believe in creating sneakers that not only elevate your style but also protect our world. We ensure that every decision we make, from selecting materials to packaging, aligns with our dedication to environmental responsibility and ethical practices. Innovation is at the heart of our efforts to drive sustainability across our business model. We are challenging and reimagining the environmental polluting practices of the industry that have been in place for decades to achieve our goal.

SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT DESIGN

By adopting cutting-edge 3D design and visualisation technology, we are creating an eco-friendly landscape for product design, sample, and content creation. Our team of skilled 3D designers craft a diverse range of sneaker concepts and designs in 3D, effectively reducing sampling lead times and minimising the need for physical samples. This efficient approach not only optimises resources but also contributes to reducing emissions by eliminating the need for sample transportation.

Supply-chain transparency and traceability 

We are committed to ensuring complete transparency and traceability of our sustainable practices throughout our supply chain. To achieve this, we use blockchain technologies to create a digital product passport that provides our customers with information about the origin and source of our raw materials, production processes, and the components used in making our sneakers. We firmly believe that luxury fashion and sustainability can coexist, and we are proud to lead the way in making this a reality. 

Material innovation 

At ELVARDI, we strongly believe in integrating sustainability into every aspect of our business operations. To achieve this, we only use high-quality leather from LWG-certified Italian tanneries in the manufacturing of our sneakers. Our commitment to ethical sourcing and environmental stewardship is reflected in this approach. But this is just the beginning— We are working on introducing new materials that are 100% vegan and developing a bio-leather range that offers a superior and eco-friendly alternative to traditional animal leather. By continuously investing in sustainable material innovation, we aim to create a future where product innovation and environmental consciousness go hand in hand, driven by our vision for a sustainable future.

Driving circular economy with durable products

We have devised an innovative business model that prioritise recycling and refurbishing to encourage the adoption of circular product designs that are long-lasting. Our aim is to promote efficient recycling and reuse processes, which will contribute to a sustainable and eco-friendly future. Also, we are also working on introducing a secondary marketplace for customers to resell their sneakers, thus further promoting the circular economy.
