Founders Sofi and Nick met while working with the UN Refugee Agency. Their experience with the UN helped them see the impact that the global fashion industry had on the lives of workers and the surrounding environment. In 2014, they left their posts to find an innovative solution to these global problems. After spending six months learning from grass roots organizations they introduced a contemporary line of footwear that was design forward, environmentally and socially conscious and could take them around the world and back in just their carry-on.
