- Founded in 2005 by ex-Podiatrist and long-term vegan Alicia Lai, Bourgeois Boheme (BB) is an independent footwear brand for men and women, completely free from animal-derived materials—holding the Vegan Society trademark and approved by PETA.
- Producing under ethical conditions in Portugal from eco-friendly vegan leathers using traditional techniques, BB works with three hand-picked factories in São João da Madeira and visit several times a year.
- BB shoes are completely free from PVC, and instead use an Italian-made cotton-backed microfibre PU (polyurethane) called Mycro©, as well as introducing plant-based fibres such as Piñatex™ made from pineapple leaves.
- BB continuously review their materials to ensure they stay environmentally aware, including the use of Italian cotton weaved with paper, cork and plant-based polymers (including grains and seeds from food-free crops) as well as recycled rubber soles and organic cotton laces. You can read more about the materials BB use on their website.
