Made in Brazil.
The suede is made from the underside of bovine leather previously brushed to make it softer and more flexible. It comes from farms in the south of Brazil (Rio Grande do Sul). It is tanned in Brazil, without using any hazardous or prohibited chemicals. VEJA uses conventional dyes that comply with regulations. Special attention is paid to water usage during the tanning process. The suede is also coated with water repellent oils without PFCs (chemical compounds) to protect the sneakers from light rain. The suede is certified Silver by the Leather Working Group.
