Umòja which means ‘unity’ in the Swahili language, is 100% Plant-based sneakers which combine African traditional know-how and innovative textiles in an attempt to provide green alternatives in the very opaque textile industry.
Our collections have been created to be the all-time sneaker of our wardrobes. And their vintage style has been inspired by the 90's sneakers.
Our sneakers have been designed to showcase the luxury and quality of each material and each natural colour.
We choose not to use synthetic materials nor plastic or recycled plastic nor chemicals or metals. We replace them with 100% plant-based raw materials, which are totally environmentally friendly.
We only use 4 raw materials which are: biological cotton, linen, hemp and hevea milk from the rubber plant.
They are raw, natural or dyed with plants and minerals without chemicals, and are all handcrafted.
