The clothing industry contributes 10% of the pollution driving the climate crisis. It is also a major driver in unethical labor practices around the world. Yet, it doesn't have to be that way.

At Solana, we are committed to using the most eco-friendly materials available to us and to doing our part to combat the climate and energy crisis. We are doing what we can because we must.

For us, quality is the result of our desire for connection. At our core, we are a socially responsible brand that believes everything we do should be done with intention. That, of course, is what will drive the world's transition to sustainability. Better foresight, better awareness, and more intentional production.

As a brand, our mission is to inspire people to create a cleaner, more culturally conscious world. Our shoes are inspired by our Founder's life and love for travel, and each shoe is designed with the goal of bridging cultural divides.

As for the shoes, they are ethically made and thoughtfully crafted in Spain at a family-run atelier where the true espadrille heritage is still preserved. It is our goal to create the highest quality shoe with the lowest possible ecological footprint, while setting a new standard for what you and the planet deserve.

The solutions are out there, but it's a matter of thinking differently about the world. There is a lot of work to be done, but we believe it is possible. We invite you to explore our process, to see the time and attention given to every shoe. Ultimately, you have the power to change how clothes are made by demanding better for yourself and the planet.
