Ekn - vegan sneakers, handmade in a fair and Co2-neutral way.
Ekn is a German label that produces stylish sneakers with the claim to offer absolutely long-lasting quality. The brand was born because more and more poorly processed sneakers were being offered on the market, which at the same time pollute the environment and are produced under terrible working conditions. Ekn doesn't want to do that and has developed a sustainable overall concept to produce sustainable sneakers. The name comes from Turkish and means something like "seed" or "seed"; the brand is pronounced "i'kin".
The shoes are handmade in small quantities in Portal, where about 70 people work under fair and family-friendly conditions. All logistics and production are CO2-neutral, and sustainable materials such as organic cotton, recycled PET bottles and cork are used. Ekn stands for maximum quality and a minimum ecological footprint!
