Since 2005, Veja has been making sneakers differently infusing each stage of production with a positive impact. Their supply chain respects both humans and the environment and they prioritize transparency, organic material and fair trade sourcing.

Veja works directly with small Brazilian producers, who are organized into cooperatives of organic cotton and wild rubber from the Amazon.

The bovine ChromeFree leather is smooth and light. Coming from farms located in the south of Brazil (Rio Grande do Sul), it undergoes an innovative tanning process where no chrome, heavy metals or dangerous acids are involved. By simplifying the tanning process, the use of chemicals and energy is limited, the use of water is reduced by about 40% and the use of salt by 80%. After tanning, the water is recyclable.
