ONE-FOR-ONE

Plant the seeds of a better future.

We not only respect the environment, but furthermore try to actively help it. ONETREEPLANTED is a project dedicated to fighting deforestation around the world. For each pair of YATAY sold, one tree will be planted by this amazing team.

plus BOX

Clearly eco-friendly.

Each YATAY box is made out of 5 recycled plastic bottles. Its patented design allows for remarkably efficient and eco-friendly transportation: its environmental impact is approximately 90% lower than a classic shoebox.

plus COMPONENTS

Because a shoe is not only made by sole, upper and lining.

All our additional components have also been carefully selected to minimize their environmental impact. For the strings, we use Italian hemp, a crop with very low water and land requirements; its local sourcing minimizes the shipping environmental impact. Our toecaps and buttresses are realized with a organic cotton base treated with a water-based, solvent-less technology.

plus UPPER

It looks like leather, it feels like leather, but it’s even better; Mother Nature says thanks.

We perfected an innovative advanced footwear material made out of two sustainable resources: fabric obtained from recycled raw materials and BioPolyols. BioPolyols are bio-derived polymers obtained from organic material featuring a much lower environmental impact than the usual petroleum-based alternatives.

plus LINING

As light as air, as pure as water.

For our lining, we use a microfiber made of recycled polyester and water-borne polyurethane. The production process, developed in Italy, allows for an 80% CO2 emissions cut compared to the standard technology. The final product is feather-soft and absolutely breathable, for total comfort. During dyeing, the use of non-toxic coloring agents is a further guarantee of the product’s respect for both your health and the environment.

plus SOLE

Even soles have a heart. Actually, two.

Our soles, offering a guaranteed 10-year walking lifetime, are made out of bio-derived polyurethane and feature two green bio-plastic cores: obtained from industrial waste, they are fully biodegradable. When disposed of, they are completely biodegraded in about 500 days.

ABOUT

At a time when fast shopping is just one click away, landfills are piling up with once loved items and huge quantities of fabric go irremediably wasted, we want to prove that shopping without hurting the environment is possible and as cool as ever. It took us two years to create a shoe that’s as sustainable as it is minimal and timeless. Manufactured in Italy through procedures developed to reduce the environmental impact, Yatay shoes are entirely made of eco-friendly materials.
