Ahimsa - vegan & fair trade shoes from Brazil
Ahimsa is a vegan fair trade brand from Brazil and was founded there in 2015.
The vegan shoes by Ahimsa are made with a lot of handwork and attention to detail by real shoemakers. This craftsmanship is reflected in the quality, design and materials used. As one of the few vegan manufacturers worldwide, Ahimsa operates its own factory. This means they can vouch for the quality of their shoes themselves and constantly optimise them.
Ahimsa sees itself not just as a manufacturer, but as a brand that prioritises love and reason. Founder Gabriel lives vegan and ecologically, which has given rise to the desire to produce vegan shoes that are not only free of animal suffering, but are also produced in a fair and sustainable way.
The meaning of Ahimsa comes from the ancient Indian language, at the centre of which is the idea of not wanting to hurt and living non-violently. The approaches to this concept can be found in Hinduism, Buddism and Jainism.
